Providing opportunities for University Honors and Leadership (UHL) students to engage in research projects with outstanding faculty members is a core component of the UHL educational mission. Students benefit from immersion in the research methods of their chosen field of study, the opportunity to work closely with a faculty mentor, and learning to write up and present research results for public dissemination. These experiences not only enhance the student's educational experience during their time at the University, but also provide significant benefits in gaining admission to top graduate programs and later on in the job market.
UHL Student Research Fellows Program
Since 2010 the UHL Student Research Fellows Program has promoted and supported research opportunities for UHL students. The program assists interested UHL students in identifying sponsoring faculty members and research projects in their areas of interest and provides funding in support of this process. The number of UHL Student Research Fellows grants is limited, and awards are determined through a competitive selection process.
For further information about the UHL Student Research Fellows Program, please contact Dr. Steven Medema, UHL Director.
