2013 Summer Fellowship Awardees

The Center for Undergraduate Research (CUGR), is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2013 Summer Research and Creative Activities Fellowships. The fellowships were developed to enhance and increase undergraduate student involvement in faculty-supervised research and are supported through a PRE-VUE grant awarded by the President’s Office. Each fellowship provides a $3,000 award for the student to cover costs associated with the project. Congratulations to all fellowship recipients.
