TWO NEW UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH AWARDS

Independent research represents one of the highest achievements of undergraduate student learning. Completing serious, high-quality research requires critical thinking, analysis, and creativity.  The two awards showcase the most rigorous and significant undergraduate research from a wide variety of academic fields originating at Penn State Brandywine. Moreover, the quality of the nominated research is a testimony to students’ understanding and development in their field and faculty leadership through excellence. The presentation and publication of these competitive undergraduate research projects underscores the mutual benefit obtained from faculty and student collaboration.

The deadline for nominations for the Award is March 20, 2009.  The award committee encourages faculty and students to plan their application.  Application materials should be e-mailed directly to the Chair of Committee Dr. Raed Elaydi at rse13@psu.edu.
