As the semester draws to a close, faculty are asked to take a moment to reflect on freshmen and sophomores who might be strong candidates for University-endorsed awards, such as Fulbright grants. The Office of Undergraduate Scholarly Engagement’s Talent Identification Program (T.I.P.) uses faculty to help identify high achieving students early in their careers, marking them as potential candidates for various fellowships, grants, and scholarships. Once identified, the Office of Undergraduate Scholarly Engagement will meet and work with students to identify goals for their upcoming years, identify potential scholarship opportunities, and assist in applying for appropriate awards.

Faculty who are interested in learning more about conducting research with their students can take advantage of upcoming Office of Undergraduate Scholarly Engagement brown bag lunches, according to John Orr. Winners of this year’s Provost’s Initiative for Undergraduate Research as well as past veterans of faculty/student research collaboration will be meeting to talk about problems, solutions, joys, and trials of collaborative research with students.
Lunch dates are Friday, January 30; Friday, February 20; Friday, March 27, and Friday, April 24. All will be held in the Bauccio Commons Teske Room from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. Please bring your own lunch.

The first annual Summer Research Symposium will occur on Sunday, November 9, from 5 to 7 p.m., in Bauccio Commons. All are welcome to come see the amazing research opportunities many of our students had this past summer, both at UP and all across the nation and world. Students will be presenting posters of their work and will be available to answer questions about their research. For more information contact John Orr at firstname.lastname@example.org. The symposium is sponsored by the Office of Undergraduate Scholarly Engagement.
