Provost's Office Soliciting Original Undergraduate Research Proposals Full-time undergraduates interested in performing original research are invited to submit proposals for the third Provost s Undergraduate Awards for Research and Excellence. Recipients of the award, to be announced this spring, will receive up to $2,500, said Provost Joseph Cooper. A portion of the funds is intended to cover expenses incurred by students, faculty and departments in the course of the research. In the case of Peabody students, the support is meant for the costs associated with composition and performance projects. Award recipients can choose either to receive up to $1,500 of the $2,500 as a cash award, or to receive academic credit for their work. "The opportunity to do original work in a research-intensive atmosphere is one of the most important advantages of attending a school such as Hopkins as an undergraduate," Dr. Cooper said. "These awards are meant to further encourage this kind of work and to promote close interaction between undergraduates and the faculty." Current freshmen, sophomores and juniors in Arts and Sciences, Engineering, Nursing or the Peabody Conservatory may apply for the Provost s Awards. Applications are being accepted until March 17 for projects to be undertaken this summer. April 10 is the proposal deadline for fall projects. Proposals will be evaluated by a committee of faculty from the four participating divisions, chaired by Ted Poehler, vice provost for research. Applications are available from Dr. Poehler s office: 276 Garland Hall, Homewood. For further information, call 516-8495.
