Undergraduates earning grants for research proposals to be recognized

Posted: Updated:
HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

This is a news release from The University of Southern Mississippi

Southern Miss undergraduates awarded for grants for their research proposals will be recognized January 17 on the Hattiesburg Campus.

The ceremony will be held in the Thad Cochran Center room 218 A/B at 2 p.m..

Southern Miss supports research opportunities for undergraduates through its Center for Undergraduate Research. Established in 2011, the center's mission is the enhancement of the undergraduate experience through the promotion and support of student-faculty collaborations in research, creative projects and scholarship.

The center recently launched its Eagle Scholars Program for Undergraduate Research (Eagle SPUR), which provides funding for independent research by an undergraduate student in collaboration with a faculty member. The program includes up to $20,000 in research grants for project proposals submitted by qualified students in the fall and spring semesters. On Friday, 24 students and their faculty mentors will be on hand for a reception to recognize their achievement in securing funding for their proposals, and be available to media to discuss their research goals.

Funding can help defray research costs associated with acquiring equipment and other materials, and travel to academic conferences to present their work, among other expenses.
