Undergraduate Research Board

The Undergraduate Research Board contributes to the Grants and Research Office by reviewing applications for our Collaborative Inquiry Grant, Young Scholars Grant, and Community-Based Research Grant programs. In addition, the board helps to establish policies and procedures for these grant programs. Finally, each spring the Undergraduate Research Board reviews nominations and selects a winner of the annual Undergraduate Research Award for Faculty.
