The Honors Undergraduate Research Scholars Program encourages mutually beneficial faculty/student collaboration in experiential projects. We interpret research broadly to include formal research and creative endeavors in all disciplines, including the basic and applied sciences, humanities, fine arts, social sciences, business, and education.
Students work closely with faculty members, enhance their research and management skills, and in some cases have the opportunity to publish research/scholarship with a professor or be cited in a professor’s professional publications. This experience enhances student resumes, lays the basis for knowledgeable letters of reference, and builds confidence in students. Students with research scholarships are also better positioned to apply for graduate or professional school and to apply for Fulbright, Goldwater, Truman, Udall, and other national and international scholarships.
These scholarships are awards of $2,500 for the Summer Term to support and encourage undergraduate work with individual faculty members on research or scholarship in a mentoring relationship. The scholarship is available for the student to conduct research or scholarship related to a student’s academic and/or career plans. Students with research scholarships work closely with individual faculty members, who direct and advise them on the project.
Any full-time Honors student meeting participation and grade requirements may apply. Preference will be given to students who will be juniors or seniors in Fall 2014. Please note: Research Scholarship funding is processed through the Financial Aid Office and figured into a student’s financial aid package; therefore, it can impact your overall aid. Students must be registered for at least 1 credit hour during the Summer 2014 term.
The application deadline for Summer 2014 has passed.
Information about and the application for Fall 2014 scholarships will be available in late-March.
