U Discover Research Scholar Program announces 2012 participants
The U. Discover Summer Research Scholar Program is a project of the Council for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity. Students apply to the program and undergo a competitive selection process. The program is designed to give undergraduate students in any academic field experience in conducting a scholarly research project under the guidance of a faculty mentor. Selected students participate as a group in bi-weekly lunch hour presentations on various topics related to conducting research activities and learn from their peers about research in different disciplines.
Research scholars are required to maintain a journal about the process of conducting their research. In addition, scholars will present their project at the South Dakota Biomedical Research Infrastructure Network poster session at the Sanford School of Medicine and IdeaFest 2013.
