Description/Abstract

Over the past ten years Rollins College has developed a program designed to engage students in original scholarship in a partnership with a member of the faculty of the College. This program is designed to involve student scholars from any subject area including the sciences, social sciences, arts, and humanities. This program is unique in that it is a student-centered program, and is not designed to merely provide faculty with the opportu- nity to pursue their research with student assistants. Rather, the intent is to provide students the opportunity to pursue genuine scholarship with faculty collaborators. Students are expected to understand the research or scholarly activity, contribute physically and intellectually to the project, and participate to an extent such that they are truly partners in the project. Students involved in the program have presented their work at numerous state and national conferences and have published their results in many peer-reviewed journals. This interactive session will include a discussion of various aspects of the program and will describe (1) the financial rewards, (2) the application process, (3) the actual program, and finally, (4) a celebration of undergraduate research in fall.
