Applications are being accepted for Western Carolina University’s Summer Undergraduate Research Program, an intensive eight-week opportunity for students and faculty to engage in high-impact practices and problem-based inquiry.
The program is open to all WCU undergraduate students from all academic disciplines, regardless of whether or not they are a member of the Honors College. Completed applications are due by midnight Monday, Feb. 12, to receive full consideration.
The dates for this year’s program are Wednesday, May 30, through Wednesday, July 25. The summer research is a full-time commitment for students, who receive a stipend, summer credits, a modest supply budget and a campus housing option. Participating faculty also receive a stipend.
Applicant information is available at this website.
A proposal-writing workshop for students will be held from 4 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 31, in the Dogwood Room of A.K. Hinds University Center.
Questions may be directed to Bill Kwochka, program director, at email@example.com; Jill Granger, dean of the Honors College, at firstname.lastname@example.org; or Kloo Hansen, undergraduate research coordinator, at email@example.com.
