Undergraduate Research Committee

Arts & Sciences Undergraduate Research Committee

The Undergraduate Research Committee evaluates student research proposals that are submitted to the Charles Center for funding, including Monroe Scholars and summer research grants, as well as various national and international awards such as Fulbright and Goldwater, Udall, Marshall, Mitchell, Gates, Rhodes, etc. Typically, each proposal is read by multiple committee members, and each committee member reads awards within and outside their areas of specialization. The committee is chaired by a faculty member who receives proposals from the Director of National Scholarships. The chair also serves as liaison to the Charles Center through the Faculty Director of Undergraduate Research. The committee is encouraged to advise the Charles Center on best practices for proposal review and other relevant procedures. Committee appointments are made by the Dean for Interdisciplinary Studies in consultation with the Faculty Director of Undergraduate Research and the A&S Dean’s office.
