What is undergraduate research?
The Council on Undergraduate Research defines undergraduate research as “An inquiry or investigation conducted by an undergraduate student that makes an original intellectual or creative contribution to the discipline.”
Therefore, undergraduate research is any scholarly research or creative work that is conducted as an undergraduate student, that is, before they receive a Bachelor’s degree.
Dixie State will host the first Regional Research Symposium (R2S) on April 6, 2018. All students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members are welcome to present their research, creative works, or innovations. The event is open to the public and free to attend! More information can be found here – R2S.
How to fund your research:
The Dixie State University Student Senate Association (DSUSA) allocates funds to students who wish to conduct academic projects that enhance a student’s educational goals. This year, DSUSA will allocate up to $20,000 dollars toward students’ academic goals.
Types of projects funded:
- Senior Capstone
- Academic conferences
- Travel reimbursement
- Research expenses
Contact a senator:
Students interested in funding should contact the senator who represents their academic school. Senators will help students draft a bill that will go before the entire Senate for approval. For more information, email your senator. Each senator is listed by academic discipline: DSUSA.
