The submission deadline is March 1st, 2020; a $500 award that will occur, following Scholars Day (April 2021), if you become a 2020-2021 Undergraduate Research Fellow and if you participate, as stipulated below.
The monetary award for the 2020-2021 academic year will be disbursed after Scholars Day 2021, and will fund such expenses such as conference or research expenditures or UNT tuition (we will not fund classwork or research at other universities). Bear in mind that, to receive your $500 tuition credit, you must conduct research throughout the fall of 2020 and the spring of 2021, and you may not graduate prior to May 2021. Because you must participate in spring-semester Scholars Day (2021)—with poster presentations, papers, or brief performing-arts productions—all distributions of funds (through student-account credits) will occur in the late spring semester of 2021. Students who currently hold a URF may reapply for another such award if they will not graduate prior to May of 2021 and if they have previously accrued no more than two such fellowships.
Undergraduate Research Fellows will also be expected to attend two panel discussions devoted to research across the disciplines.
