Pace University Initiatives for Spring and Summer 2020
Student Research Day, Wednesday, May 6, 2020 - Online
Undergraduate students from throughout Pace University are invited to present their research and artistic projects at the first virtual poster session sponsored by the Office of the Provost, the Office of Research, the Office for Student Success, and the Pforzheimer Honors College.
Student Research Day is designed to offer Honors College seniors, the Office of Student Success Undergraduate Research awardees, and student researchers from throughout the schools and colleges the opportunity to present their work to the Pace community. The virtual format will be facilitated by using a four part “quad” chart design for posters. Additionally, quad-chart submissions will be featured on the Office of Research website as part of the ongoing recognition of student achievement in research and creative inquiry.
Undergraduate Student-Faculty Summer Research Award--Summer Program 2020
Call for Proposals: Application deadline: May 8; Notification: May 20; Commence: June 1.
This program will provide a $1000 stipend for a student to conduct a faculty-mentored summer research or artistic project; sponsoring faculty will receive a $300 stipend or supply purchase. This opportunity, designed for undergraduate students who have completed their freshman, sophomore or junior year, is for projects that have developed in class settings but would benefit from in-depth development over the summer months. The goal of this program is to support faculty-mentored undergraduate research or artistic projects. Projects commence June 1 and conclude August 31. For summer 2020, students in consultation with their faculty mentors are encouraged to develop summer research and artistic projects that prioritize remote work and online learning.
Students are expected (a) to work part-time on their project over the summer months, and (b) to participate in regular check-ins with their faculty mentor no less than twice a month. At the end of the summer session students will be required (c) to complete a written research paper or other substantive report describing their project. Students also will be required to (d) submit a two-page descriptive reflection about their summer research experience, and (e) to make a public presentation of their research at a Pace undergraduate research presentation during the 2020-2021 academic year.
