The Undergraduate Research Microgrant Program is designed to facilitate research partnerships between undergraduate students and TWU faculty and follows the Council on Undergraduate Research's definition of “undergraduate research” as: An inquiry or investigation conducted by an undergraduate student that makes an original intellectual or creative contribution to the discipline. This definition includes all scholarly and creative activity appropriate to any discipline in the University. The awardees are currently-enrolled TWU undergraduates with a declared major and in good academic standing. Mentors are TWU faculty who have shown success in mentoring undergraduate students and have an ongoing scholarly program. Each successful student applicant received $2,000 in support of research efforts; the faculty mentors received $500 each to be used for expenses related to the student’s research.
Note that the management of this program is being transitioned to the Quality Enhancment Plan (QEP) office. Please contact Dr. Kim Miloch (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Ms. Kaye Garrison (email@example.com) at ext 4107 for more information.
