Beginning a Research Program in the Natural Sciences to be held Nov. 21-23, 2014, at the Embassy Suites, Greensboro, N.C. 

Starting a successful research program and doing scholarly work at a predominantly undergraduate institution pose unique challenges for a beginning faculty member. A goal of the institute is to give individual pre-tenured faculty members the opportunity to learn from and discuss with experienced faculty how to establish and manage a research program with undergraduates. While at the institute, participants will also prepare plans for starting and/or advancing their individual research programs at their respective campuses. A range of topics will be covered during the institute that show ways to achieve career success in undergraduate research by learning how to:

  • select undergraduate researchers,
  • mentor student researchers and develop and use their research skills,
  • manage time — balancing teaching, research and service activities,
  • develop and select research projects appropriate for undergraduates,
  • adapt to an undergraduate research environment vs. that in graduate school,
  • link research to the classroom and
  • develop grantsmanship skills related to gaining external and institutional research support.
  • Funding for successful applications is available through URACE for up to $500. Contact the URACE Office at URACE@gcsu.edu

Oct. 3, 2014 - Deadline 5 p.m. -  Coverdell Chair Public Policy Student Research Scholar (PPSRS) grant program.

The Coverdell Chair is pleased to announce the second round of the Coverdell Chair Public Policy Student Research Scholar (PPSRS) program for Academic Year 2014–2015. The main purpose of the Coverdell Chair PPSRS program is to strengthen GC’s mission as the premier public liberal arts university in Georgia and to attract and retain the highest caliber young scholars. The PPSRS program was created to enrich the academic experience of our undergraduates through research opportunities in Public Policy Studies in all disciplines from the social and physical sciences and the humanities to information and communication technology, nursing and business.

The Coverdell Chair is especially interested in promoting policy relevant research to develop innovative, workable policy solutions for major public problems. By providing access to faculty mentoring relationships and a professional research experience, the PPSRS program enables students to creatively explore their interests at a more in-depth level than can be attained in the classroom. The Coverdell Scholar program provides opportunities for undergraduates to build a competitive edge in the job market.

Summary details: Each Public Policy Student Research Scholar may receive up to $2,000 to fund his or her research project, competing for this award with the submission of a research, scholarship or creative project proposal developed in collaboration with his or her faculty mentor. Selection is based on the project’s educational and intellectual merit, the potential policy impact of the project and the student’s previous academic success. Faculty mentors may receive up to a total of $500 per project in faculty development funds upon the successful completion of the student grant. For Academic Year 2014–2015, up to two PPSRS grants will be awarded.  Application.
