Undergraduate Faculty-Mentored Grants Mission Statement

The mission of the Undergraduate Research Initiative at Angelo State University is to support and promote high-quality faculty-mentored undergraduate research, creative endeavor, and scholarship.

What is Undergraduate Research & Creative Endeavor?

Undergraduate Research & Creative Endeavor includes activities undertaken by an undergraduate student with significant faculty mentoring that gives students the opportunity to pursue advanced work in their major field of interest. Experiments done in a laboratory, research conducted in the archives of a library, interviews taken to explore a social or political concern, fieldwork leading to a better understanding of a social or environmental situation, artistic work created, and comparisons of best educational practices are all some ways to explore research opportunities. Opportunities vary across disciplines, but at a minimum, undergraduate research engages the student in critical inquiry and exposes the student to the foundations of research or creative activity in their chosen discipline. Quality undergraduate research and creative activity result in a product that has potential for peer-reviewed dissemination in the form of presentations, publications, exhibitions, or performances.

The deadline for 2015-2016 Year-Long Faculty-Mentored Projects is Saturday, May 2nd
