COLUMBIA, SC — SCICU has awarded $90,000 towards the funding of undergraduate research projects that will be conducted by students at SCICU member colleges and universities during 2016.
In early March, a team of five professors from SCICU member institutions reviewed and evaluated over 50 undergraduate research proposals submitted by students from SCICU member colleges and universities. After rigorous review of the projects, the evaluation team selected 34 student projects for funding during the 2016 research program.
Student researchers will have through early December 2016 to complete their projects. Upon completion, they will prepare and submit one-page abstracts summarizing their project findings.
On February 23, 2017 student researchers will present their 2016 project findings at the 2017 Research Symposium at the Milliken & Company corporate headquarters in Spartanburg.
A list of the undergraduate student research projects funded and conducted in 2015 may be viewed here.
