Undergraduate Students Creating
New Knowledge and Works


Due to COVID-19 we are making some changes in due dates and possibly programming for Undergraduate Research. Here is where things are:
Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) Program: Due date is moved to April 15. As we approach that time we will see where we are with the pandemic and determine whether and how the SURE program can run this summer. Here is a link to the call for proposals: https://www.newpaltz.edu/research/usr_sure.html
Academic Year Undergraduate Research Experience (AYURE) Program: Round 1 is cancelled, and we will consider all proposals early in Fall 2020 semester. 
Student Research Symposium (SRS): The deadline is moved to April 15 for abstracts. The SRS will be an online thing this spring. Please do encourage and work with students to submit abstracts. A PowerPoint to guide abstract writing is attached to this message. Here is the link to submit an abstract: https://srs.newpaltz.edu/event/26/
Mentor Award: Deadline for the mentor award is also moved to April 15. I have attached the 2020 call for nominations.
Applications will be accepted for a one-year term of the director position of RSCA until the magical date of April 15. I have attached the call for applications.

The Undergraduate Research, Scholarship and Creative Activities (RSCA) program has been established to enable undergraduate students to experience the excitement of creating new knowledge or works.  Like us on Facebook.
