ALBANY, N.Y. (March 20, 2018) – Are you an undergraduate pursuing an independent research study? Are you actively engaged in a creative project? Need funds to continue or expand your project, or to present it at a conference?

Applications are being accepted until Friday, March 23, for one of nine awards of $500 each for the Situation Interactive Prize for Experience Research. Apply online.

“This award is the first of its kind for undergraduates at the University at Albany,” said Vice Provost and Dean for Undergraduate Education Jeanette Altarriba. “Research, scholarship and creative activities are all part of the University’s mission. With this award, we hope students are able to expand upon their work, present at conferences, and continue to pursue opportunities to become the next great thinkers and doers of the world.”

At last year’s Undergraduate Research Conference, Damian Bazadona ’98, founder and president of Situation Interactive, made a commitment to provide undergraduate students with an award for their participation in research, scholarship and creative activities.

Proposal applications will also be accepted until Friday for the 15th Undergraduate Research Conference. Students from all academic departments, schools and majors are encouraged to apply. Students may submit their proposal applications through the online form.

The conference will be Friday, April 27, from 3 to 7:30 p.m.

“The research and creative works of our undergraduates directly reflects important faculty investment in mentoring across many departments,” said Associate Dean for Undergraduate Research Marilyn Masson. “The conference continues to expand annually and represents a special opportunity to showcase our undergraduates’ contributions to the research and creative excellence of our institution.”

In order to prepare students for presenting at the conference, there will be several pre-conference workshops:

  •  Research Poster Workshop - Thursday, April 5, 4-6 p.m. in LC 3C. Students presenting at the conference will learn how to effectively display their work. Templates for a research poster will be provided and two free poster prints will be raffled off.
  • Effective Presentation Skills Workshop – Thursday, April 12, 4-6 p.m. in LC 3C. Students presenting either an oral presentation or poster presentation will learn how to feel more comfortable and prepared to share their research with the audience.
