Our goal for this year is to offer 150 awards of $2,000 to exceptional CLA freshmen. Faculty members can receive up to $250 for related expenses. Students are expected to devote up to 10 hours of effort each week during the spring and are required to submit a poster presentation, short report, performance piece, or similar at the end of the semester. Students have the option of registering for 1-2 credits in order to engage in work beyond 10 hours/week, or to complete a more substantial report. For more details please view the program description at http://ugp.cla.umn.edu/researc
Faculty interested in including a talented freshman in their scholarly work for spring semester should respond no later than Friday, September 30, by completing the 2016-2017 Faculty Questionnaire for the CLA Dean's Freshman Research and Creative Scholars Program with their proposal information (form requires University of Minnesota email sign-in). Faculty can have more than one freshman research student.
The Director of Administration, Scholarships, and Awards Barbara Schwab would be happy to answer any questions you may have about the program. She can be reached at 612-625-7994 or email@example.com.
