The submission deadline is April 9, 2019. A $500 award that will occur, following Scholars Day (April 2020), if you become a 2019-2020 Undergraduate Research Fellow and if you participate, as stipulated below.
The monetary award for the 2019-2020 academic year will be disbursed after Scholars Day 2020 and will fund such expenses as conference or research expenditures or UNT tuition (we will not fund study or research at other universities). Bear in mind that, to receive your $500 tuition credit, you must conduct research throughout the fall of 2019 and the spring of 2020, and you may not graduate prior to May 2020. Because you must participate in spring-semester Scholars Day (2020)—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 2020. Students who currently hold a URF may reapply if they will not graduate prior to May of 2020 and if they have previously accrued no more than two such fellowships.
Undergraduate Research Fellows will also be expected to attend two panel discussions (one in the fall; the other, in the spring) devoted to research across the disciplines.
