|AURA 2007 gives students opportunities in research|
Available for the summer and the fall semester of 2007, the North Dakota Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (ND EPSCoR), Advanced Undergraduate Research Award (AURA) program is an important and successful means for increasing the number of undergraduate students participating in faculty mentored research. AURA activities give undergraduate students an opportunity to directly experience academic research under the direction of a faculty mentor and to learn about graduate school at a point during their studies when they need to be making critical decisions about their future careers.
It is expected that AURA students will become contributing members of their research groups and be mentored into research careers. It is also expected that AURA students will apply for at least one nationally competitive undergraduate scholarship, such as the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Program.
A complete list of UND research opportunities and application forms are available from ND EPSCoR’s web page at www.ndepscor.nodak.edu
Faculty are encouraged to call this opportunity to the attention of their students. Student applications must be received by noon Wednesday, April 11, in the ND EPSCoR Office, Stop 7093, Twamley Hall Room 415.
