Prentice Institute Undergraduate Research Scholarship
Preamble and Purpose:
The Prentice Undergraduate Research Scholarship (PURS) offers financial support to senior level undergraduate students who undertake a research project associated with independent study, applied studies or thesis under the supervision of a Prentice Institute research affiliate. Ideally, the project should be part of the supervisor’s ongoing research project for the Prentice Institute. The intent of the scholarship is to increase involvement of undergraduate students in Prentice Institute research activities. The scholarship is also an excellent way that research affiliates could identify and recruit well qualified graduate students and ultimately develop the next generation of scholars in Prentice Institutes’ research areas. Scholarship holders are expected to participate in Prentice Institute’s research programs and activities. The research scholarship is administered by the Prentice Research Advisory Committee.
