URSA Scholars week is a time to celebrate the creativity and discoveries resulting from undergraduate research.
Held annually during the first week of April, students from all disciplines present posters or platform presentations or display their artistic creations. These presentations are a testimony to our belief that research engagement promotes critical thought and hones analytical skills. By presenting their work and participating in discussions, students develop a greater depth of understanding. This helps them prepare for advanced study, community and industry leaders, and our next generation of scholars and scientists.
We are grateful to the Baylor faculty who support and encourage research experiences for their students, lending their time and resources to the next generation. During this time we also recognize faculty that are excellent mentors and leaders in the area of providing undergraduate research opportunities with the Elizabeth Vardaman Excellence in Mentoring Undergraduates and Excellence in Research Leadership Awards, each of which includes a $1,000 cash prize and trophy.
Students- please make plans to present your research and support your peers by attending the presentations and the art events and learn about a field you knew little or nothing about!
Abstract submission will open Spring 2024!
