The Office of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, the Office of Research and Economic Development, and the Honors College invite undergraduates from all of UNT’s colleges and schools to participate in the Tenth Annual University Scholars Day to be held on April 17, 2014.

Dr. Gloria Cox, Dean of the Honors College, and Dr. Tom McCoy, Vice President for the Office of Research and Economic Development (ORED) at UNT, are pleased to announce that ORED will provide funding for major financial awards to undergraduate students with the best papers and posters presented at University Scholars Day in order to encourage students to attend prestigious regional and national professional meetings.

The purpose of Scholars Day is to celebrate the work of undergraduate researchers at UNT. Students do not need to be members of the Honors College to present.

Undergraduate students are invited to submit abstracts for a poster or paper based on original research or creative work conducted under the guidance of a faculty mentor at UNT during the past year.

For inclusion in this event, student researchers must submit an application. The application requires approval of the student’s faculty mentor/sponsor. All students will be recognized with a certificate of participation. The best papers and posters will be recognized with special awards.

Following the conference, the papers may be submitted for publication in UNT’s electronic journal of undergraduate research, The Eagle Feather.
