Award Winners for the Spring 2022 Warrior Scholars Conference
The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) and the Academy of Scholars thanks all students who presented their research or creative projects at the Warrior Scholars Conference this spring.
The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) supports students from disciplines across the university – hard sciences, social sciences, performing arts, and humanities – to participate in undergraduate research. Undergraduate research puts theory into practice as you work on projects and are mentored by full-time faculty who are leaders in their field.
The Academy of Scholars' founding purpose was to raise the scholastic prestige of the university by bringing the most prominent academic experts to campus under its aegis and to create a community of scholars from among its most celebrated researchers. The functions of the Academy are to promote creative achievement in scholarship by recognition and provision of incentives, to attract young scholars of outstanding promise, to bring to the University for a given period of time distinguished scholars from other institutions, to sponsor meetings of all types which stimulate interdisciplinary intellectual activity, and to promote intellectual interchange at all levels.
The UROP program is honored that the Academy of Scholars volunteered to judge the Warrior Scholars presentations and provided gift card awards to the best presentations. A second category of awards titled “Honorable Mention” was added this year due to the number of high-quality presentations.
