This is Part 1 of the Spring 2020 Emerging Scholars Program application. After completing Part 1, you still need to complete part 2 forms (Please see here).
Following is the online component of the application. This part of the application is used for both students who already have a faculty mentor and those interested in conducting research who have not yet found a faculty mentor. For the latter, we will send your application to faculty conducting research related to your interests to help make a connection. To learn more about the Emerging Scholars Program, faculty research projects and other research opportunities, please visit the Program websites:
The Emerging Scholars Program provides a $500 stipend for full-time students (enrolled for 12 or more credits) and a $250 stipend for part-time students (enrolled in 11 or fewer credits) for conducting research with a faculty member. The purpose of the program is to provide students with an opportunity to apply what was learned in the class room to discover new knowledge, solve real-world problems and develop professionally while working with faculty to advance their scholarly endeavors. The program includes specially designed workshops offered by the Undergraduate Research Committee and others, and participation in a poster session. This is the online component of a two-part application, to be filled out by the student interested in participating in the undergraduate research program in Spring 2020.
