Students Encouraged to Apply for Undergraduate Research Awards and Opportunities

Published: Sep 20, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 20, 2013) — University of Kentucky undergraduates involved in research or creative activities on campus are encouraged to apply for prestigious programs offered by the UK Office of Undergraduate Research. The Oswald Award Program is currently accepting applications through Oct. 31, and the Posters-at-the-Capitol program is accepting submissions through Oct. 16. A call for abstracts for the 2014 National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR), will open Sept. 30.

 

The Oswald Award Program is intended to promote creativity in all fields of study. The program accepts reports of all forms of creativity and scholarship by undergraduate students including, but not limited to: artistic and musical creations; creative writing and poetry; and reports of studies and research in the humanities, the social, natural, and medical sciences, agriculture, business, architecture, and engineering. Any current UK undergraduate (full- or part-time) who does not already have a four-year degree is eligible for this competition and is invited to apply.

 

Awards in each category are: First Place: $350; Second Place: $200; and Honorable Mention, if applicable. All submissions are sent anonymously to faculty reviewers in related fields and are judged based on a rubric. Awards will be announced Dec. 10.

 

For more information, visit www.uky.edu/academy/oswald.  

 

Posters-at-the-Capitol is a collaborative program where students from each of Kentucky's eight public universities and the Kentucky Community and Technical College System present the results of research they have conducted as part of their college experience before the state legislature in Frankfort.  The competitive program gives students not only the opportunity and experience to showcase their work, but to also inform policymakers about important issues that affect Kentucky. It also shows legislators the value of undergraduate research.

 

The 2014 Posters-at-the-Capitol will be held Feb. 27. To submit an abstract, and view guidelines for submission, visit www.uky.edu/academy/posters.

 

Another highly valuable experience for undergraduate researchers is the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR), which will be held at UK April 3-5, 2014. The call for abstracts for will run from Sept. 30 to Dec. 6, and more information on how to submit an abstract can be found at www.uky.edu/academy/NCUR.

 

The UK Office of Undergraduate Research is part of the Academy of Undergraduate Excellence within the Division of Undergraduate Education at UK.
