Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program

The College of Liberal Arts Dean’s Office has funds to support undergraduate research projects to be conducted during the spring 2015 semester. Research projects in any Liberal Arts discipline will be considered. While the topic and results may contribute to a faculty member’s research program, the effort must be the student’s own work with mentoring by a faculty member who will supervise all stages of the project (concept, proposal, execution, final report). The deadline to apply is 5pm on Monday, December 2, 2014.
