Magellan Scholar undergraduate research program seeks proposals

The Magellan Scholar undergraduate research award is open to undergraduates, all campuses, and all disciplines. Magellan Scholars receive up to $3,000 to help fund a research project, competing for this award with the submission of a research, scholarship, or creative project proposal developed in collaboration with his or her faculty mentor. Selection is based on the project's educational and intellectual merit, the potential impact of the project, and the student's previous academic success. Proposals are due by Tuesday, October 20, at 5:00 p.m.

Students must attend a Magellan application workshop before submitting their proposals. The workshop schedule is available below and additional details are available on the Office of Undergraduate Research website.
