Magellan Ten-Year Celebration

The Office of Research is proud to celebrate ten years of the Magellan undergraduate research funding program, which has sent more than 1,000 students on expeditions to discovery in every discipline.

Initiated in 2005, the Magellan Scholar program is celebrating a huge milestone this fall: 10 years, more than 1,000 undergraduate research projects and $3 million in funding for curious students. Added to this, over the years, are eight more programs to celebrate and support our students under the Magellan umbrella. These numbers hint at a larger story that we’re telling here, and celebrating throughout the 2015-2016 academic year. Check back often for the latest Magellan news, images and celebration event listings.
