UNCW Undergraduate Research Scholars
If you are involved in research on campus, but are going above and beyond, serving as a research assistant, researching in the community, or even creating your own research project in your department (XXX 491-DIS, XXX 499-HON) then you're on your way to becoming an Undergraduate Research Scholar!
- Research and creative work that goes above what is required for the course is what is important for an undergraduate research scholar. Any research project takes preparation and planning before proper execution and the undergraduate research scholar should be engaged in that process.
- After completion of the project, the scholar must present their results, exhibit or performance OFF-CAMPUS. On-campus opportunities are already expected, but engaging an audience wider than our UNCW family is important to be an undergraduate research scholar.
- You, the research scholar are in charge of making sure you meet the requirements set forth and keeping records for your preparation, execution of research and where you present your project.
- Application for Recognition: There are two steps for application. First, all information related to presentations, publications, awards, etc, must be entered at the URI- Undergraduate Research Involvement site. Both students and faculty mentors have access to that site. Second, complete the UNCW Undergraduate Research Scholar Recognition Application
- UNCW Undergraduate Research Scholars and Distinguished Undergraduate Research Scholars will be recognized annually.
Has your research involvement been recognized by off campus experts?
- If you have submitted your research to a peer reviewed journal or applied for an external grant? Have you recieved an award for your research? If yes, you can apply to be a Distinguished Undergraduate Research Scholar.
For complete guidelines please read through the Undergraduate Research Scholar Handbook.
