Student Creative Arts and Research Symposium Scheduled for April 18-19, 2023

The 2023 Student Creative Arts and Research Symposium will be held on the Denton campus and virtually Tuesday, April 18, and Wednesday, April 19, 2023. More than 270 undergraduate and graduate students presented their research projects by poster, platform or virtual presentations during the 2022 Symposium. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to develop confidence and skills in presenting their creative arts and research to others. It is also an opportunity for students to converse with faculty and fellow students about research and creative activities. 

Incentive Programs for Researchers:

ORSP is pleased to announce that there are two incentive programs this year. The Proposal Development and Submission Incentive Program provides incentives to principal investigators for the development and submission of proposals for external funding. Refer to the Proposal Development and Submission Incentive Program Guidelines for details regarding program funding, eligibility, and payment information. In addition to the incentive program for proposal development and submission, TWU also offers the Faculty Research Incentive Program (FRIP) to recognize and reward recipients who have received external funding and charge a portion of their salary to external grants. Incentive payments for the FRIP are made during the summer as task payments and the details for this program can be found in the guidance.
