Are you a student engaging in original research/scholarship?

Are you a faculty member working with students engaging in original research/scholarship?

This is a great opportunity to showcase students’ work with their advisors’ mentorship and endorsement!

Students benefit by receiving:

  • valuable experiences working with faculty on scholarship activities,
  • professional experience in research presentation skills,
  • networking opportunities with students having similar interests, and
  • opportunities to compete for recognition and prizes.

Faculty sponsors gain:

  • assistance in your research endeavors, while teaching valuable skills to your students,
  • acknowledgement for your mentorship and guidance,
  • scholarly growth in your discipline,
  • service experience that benefits your students and the university, and
  • a chance to provide students with a unique opportunity and future collaboration.

As we head toward the winter break, we wanted to ask you to make plans to participate!

Sincerely,

The IUP Student Scholars Fora Planning Committee
