The Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities Award in the College of Arts and Sciences:
- Recognizes and honors academic excellence and potential
- Provides undergraduate students with opportunities for hands-on research or creative activities experience with faculty from the college
- Increases the opportunities for undergraduates to collaborate with faculty members in professional activities outside the classroom
The joint student-faculty projects represent the diversity of scholarly activity in the college. Projects have ranged from English editorial assistants to molecular biology research.
Undergraduate students will generally be expected to have:
- Declared a major or minor in a department or program within the college
- Completed at least 30 credit hours
- Good academic standing
College of Arts and Sciences Research and Creative Activities Awards may not be held during the same term as a research and creative activities award administered by the Lee Honors College. Award recipients may request renewal of the award for one additional term.
Summer I and II
Up to 60 awards of up to $500 may be used by the students as a stipend or to defray the cost of the project. Work associated with the award may be conducted during the fall or spring semesters or either of the summer sessions.
In addition to the college funding, projects can be sponsored by regional industry, government and hospitals.
