LAS Students and Faculty Take Part in Undergraduate Research Academy

Frida Foss

The Center for Student Research recently announced the 2020 Undergraduate Research Academy (URA) Awardees. LAS was very well represented, our faculty and students making up 80% of the awardees.

Each student-faculty pair will be funded with up to a $3,500 stipend for their work and materials. Students will also take part in a workshop series to help develop their researcher skills. These student-faculty pairs will collaborate on exciting research and further knowledge within their disciplines this fall! Please join us in congratulating them!
