Up to 60 UNC Charlotte rising seniors will gain research experience through the Charlotte Research Scholars 10-week summer research initiative. The deadline for rising seniors from all academic disciplines to apply is Friday, Feb. 24.
Through CRS, high-achieving scholars receive one-on-one, faculty-guided research training and participate in professional development sessions to prepare them for graduate school and future research careers.
“Since its inception in 2012, faculty in the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences have been strong supporters of this program by providing research opportunities for our undergraduate students,” said Banita W. Brown, the College’s Associate Dean for Academic and Student Success. “We look forward to continued engagement with this important work.”
The program runs from May 22 to July 28, 2017. To be eligible, students must have a minimum GPA of 2.8 and a demonstrated desire to do independent research. Scholars will receive a $4,000 fellowship for participation in the program. The program culminates in the Summer Research Symposium where participants will have an opportunity to present their research. The symposium is July 26 in the Student Union.
