The Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activities (URSCA) Office has several announcements to share for spring 2017.
First, the annual Sigma Xi Undergraduate Research and Creative Accomplishment Conference will be held at Penn State Behrend on Saturday, April 22. Students conducting projects in any discipline are invited to submit proposals to present at this conference. Please talk with your faculty mentor or advisor about your interest in doing so. The deadline to submit is Feb. 22 and more information is found at the website here.
Second, we are excited to coordinate the first full celebration day at Allegheny College–the Symposium for Allegheny Gator Excellence (SAGE) on Tuesday, May 2. We will host events throughout the day that allow students to showcase their URSCA, Civic Engagement, International, and other work. The Senior Project poster session will take place on this day, as well as the award ceremony for the Pelletier Library Undergraduate Research Award (apply here). Please stay tuned for more details about how to participate.
Finally, funds are still available through the URSCA office for students traveling to present their work at professional conferences. Students who applied in the fall should receive their award letters in the next two weeks. Students who would like to apply for the spring should email the director of URSCA, Aimee Knupsky, for the application at email@example.com.
