Spring 2021 Virtual Student Research Day

Apply by Monday, March 22

Undergraduate students throughout Pace are invited to present their research and artistic projects at the second virtual poster session. Student Research Day is designed to offer Honors College seniors, the Provost’s Undergraduate Research awardees, and student researchers throughout the schools and colleges the opportunity to present their work to the Pace community. The virtual format is facilitated by using a four part “quad” chart design for posters with four explanatory slides. The presentation will take place on Friday, April 23.

Provost’s Summer 2021 Student-Faculty Undergrad Research Awards

Apply by Wednesday, March 31

The goal of this Pace program is to support faculty-mentored undergraduate research or artistic projects from across schools, colleges, and disciplines during the summer and academic year. Designed for undergraduate students who have completed their first, second, or third year, this program supports projects that have evolved from mentored coursework and research settings that would benefit from further, in-depth development. Student awardees also receive a stipend paid in installments.

For Summer 2021, all student awardees are expected to:

  • >> Attend a program launch event in May;
  • >> Work part-time on their projects throughout the summer;
  • >> Participate in regular check-ins with their faculty mentor no less than twice a month;
  • >> Write reflections about the research experience;
  • >> Submit a research paper or creative/artistic project as the program concludes; and
  • >> Present at the Fall Undergraduate Research Showcase.

For Summer 2021, students (in consultation with their faculty mentors) are encouraged to develop summer research and artistic projects that can: a) be conducted remotely; b) include both remote and on-site components; or c) for on-site research, include an optional remote component. All research and creative work must be done in accordance with the Office of the Provost and the Office of Research COVID-19 guidelines and requirements.
