MURACE 2018 Summer Research Funding
2018 Apr 30
The opportunity for undergraduate students to participate in scholarship (i.e., research or creative activities) has become an important part of Georgia College's emphasis on engaged-learning. Although many students engage in scholarship during the academic year, the most intensive and rewarding work often occurs during the summer months when both the students and their mentor (i.e., faculty or teaching staff) can devote full efforts to their scholarship without the pressures of coursework and teaching. However, most students seek summer employment to pay for some of their college costs for the following year and are unable to participate in summer scholarship unless they receive funding or wages. Through the MURACE Summer Funding program, up to five (5) Georgia College students will be able to pursue their own scholarship projects or creative endeavors (i.e., substantial contribution and co-authorship with faculty mentor or one's own personal mentored research project) under the mentorship of a faculty member or become part of a faculty scholarship project.
Congratulations to the 2018 Summer Research Funding recipients.
