A&S Undergraduate Research & Creative Activity Mentorship Program

The Research and Creative Activity Mentorship Program aims to encourage and support undergraduate participation in faculty research and creative activity in A&S departments. Administered by a faculty committee, the program is an opportunity for rising juniors to cooperate actively with faculty mentors, learning firsthand about the natural integration of research, creative activity, and teaching. All Arts and Science students with 50–75 hours of course work and at least a 3.25 GPA are eligible to apply for a mentorship for the spring, summer, or fall semester. Questions about eligibility should be addressed to Associate Dean Tarkow.
