The HURA program encourages participation of undergraduate students in research, scholarly, and creative endeavors by providing funding that will enable them to work on projects of their own design with the guidance and support of a faculty mentor. The students above will be joining the more than 400 others who have benefited from this program since its inception. They will be conducting their research over the coming academic year with the goal of presenting their results at the Undergraduate Research Awards Poster Presentations & Reception in April 2020.
