Burns Summer Undergraduate Research Award
The College of Sciences & Mathematics (CSM) is accepting applications from students for introductory summer research experiences with the Burns Summer Undergraduate Research Award. This is a $2,500 stipend to two awardees for Summer 2021. Students with between 30 and 60 A-State credit hours and majoring in a CSM Bachelor’s degree program are eligible.
This program seeks to give students a bridge into undergraduate research at A-State. Awardees will research a scientific project under a CSM faculty mentor over the 2021 Summer term. Applicants should seek out a faculty mentor and prepare a brief abstract or statement of research regarding the potential project. Awardees are expected to give a capstone presentation in a formal meeting setting or in a podcast (e.g. the Create@State podcast) at end-of-summer.
Applicants are requested to submit a completed application form with a statement of research and a copy of unofficial A-State transcript by April 15. Submit application packets electronically to the committee chair, Dr. Carroll (firstname.lastname@example.org), or physically to the CSM Dean's Office in Lab Sciences West Rm 552. Complete applications include two faculty references to be submitted via this online form.
