Students' research selected for summer study
June 30, 2015
Their classmates might have gone home for the summer, but for 19 Emporia State University undergraduates, this season is the perfect time to work on research as part of the 2015 ESU Summer Undergraduate Research Program.
The program, ESURP, seeks to fund the university’s very best undergraduate students in a high-impact learning experience under the mentorship of dedicated faculty members.
“The selected projects exemplify the themes of ‘collaboration’ and ‘authenticity’ and form mutually beneficial partnerships between faculty and students,” said Dr. Tim Burnett, associate professor of biology and chair of the Undergraduate Research, Scholarship and Creative Activities committee. “ESURP creates an impactful, mentored learning environment for undergraduates while supporting the pursuit of scholarly productivity by the faculty.”
Grants of up to $7,000 that support these projects include faculty summer salary, student compensation and a generous supply budget. The program is supported by Kansas IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (K-INBRE), the Honors College, ESU Research and Grants Center, Office of the Provost, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, School of Business and the Teachers College.
Students selected for the program and their projects are here.
