The Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) (May 30-July 28, 2017) is now accepting applications from undergraduates who are interested in graduate school and research/creative work within their discipline as well as their faculty research mentors. Selected students complete 8-weeks of full-time research at West Virginia University (WVU) under the direction of a WVU faculty research mentor and a graduate or post-doctoral mentor. Undergraduate participant benefit includes $3,700 stipend. The application works best if the student has a faculty mentor in mind (or vice versa), and they both apply separately, requesting that they each work with the other. Review of completed applications will begin March 1, 2017. For more information and link to the online applications (for undergraduates and faculty research mentor), visit the SURE website .
Spring Symposium: The Office of Undergraduate Research and the Honors College in conjunction with Undergraduate Admissions are organizing a campus-wide, culminating spring poster event to celebrate undergraduate scholarly activity (research/creative endeavors) whilst encouraging prospective students to decide on attending WVU. We are now accepting abstracts for this event that is set to take place on Saturday April 8, 2017 (1-3 p.m.) in the Mountainlair Ballrooms. To submit an abstract, go to https://honorswvu.wufoo.com/forms/z4gxmu205qkhkx/. The poster event will coincide with prospective student and family attendance at the April 8 Decide WVU Day at the Mountainlair. Please encourage your undergraduate students to submit abstracts for consideration by the February 15, 2017 deadline. More info? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
