Undergraduate Research Committee

Arts & Sciences Undergraduate Research Committee

The Undergraduate Research Committee supports the Charles Center and the Office of Undergraduate Academic Affairs (OUAA). Members of the committee evaluate 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. that are administered through the OUAA. Typically, each research proposal or fellowship application 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 Undergraduate Research Program Administrator. The chair also serves as liaison to the Charles Center and the OUAA. The committee is encouraged to advise the Charles Center and OUAA administrators on best practices for proposal review and other relevant procedures. Committee appointments are made by the Director of the Charles Center in consultation with the Chair of the Undergraduate Research Committee, the Senior Director of the OUAA, and the A&S Dean’s office.
