“Our students greatly benefit from having faculty members who are actively engaged in research and mentor them through this process.”
Dr. Sigal Gottlieb, Department of Mathematics
Presenting your research
Presenting your work in writing, as a poster, or as a talk, is vital in the process of developing power. It is critical to your success as a researcher that your work becomes known to wider audiences and has an impact.
Two important presentation venues are the local Sigma Xi Research Conference, and the Massachusetts Statewide Research Conference at the UMass Amherst, both held annually in April.
Additionally, your advisor can help you find venues to present your research: department /seminar series, local conferences in your subject area, websites, blogs.
OUR conducts workshops to help you:
- Apply for research grants for undergraduates
- Approach faculty as potential advisors
- Write research-based articles for publication
- Present at conferences
OUR also offers workshops for faculty in how to mentor student research.
The Office of Undergraduate Research has created a new research grant for students interested in researching current social and economic issues. Social Justice Research Initiative for Students (SJURIS) will award grants up to $500 to any undergraduate who wish to advance research in social justice, or provide students with an opportunity to engage with some of the leading professionals on this complex topic.
The deadline to apply for this award is April 1, 2013.
