Deadline for electronic submission of 2016 Undergraduate Research Grant Applications October 1, 2016 

The Fall Undergraduate Research Meeting is a research grant proposal competition, which has been held annually since the Fall of 2001.  Students, with their faculty mentors, must submit Research Grant Applications and develop posters following the criteria of the Fall Meeting Poster Guidelines.

Undergraduate students (along with their faculty mentors) interested in participating in this meeting are required to:
(1) Submit Undergraduate Research Grant Applications by the October 1 deadline.
(2) Attend the Fall Undergraduate Research Meeting on October 29 and present a poster outlining the proposed research.

Five Undergraduate Research Grant Awards of $500 each will be awarded to selected participants at the end of this meeting. Both the Research Grant Applications and the Poster Presentations at the meeting will be evaluated to determine the recipients of these research grants. The grant award recipients will also be awarded student membership in the Virginia Academy of Science for 2017 and will be expected to present the results of their completed research at the 2017 VAS Annual Meeting in May at Virginia Commonwealth University.

VAS President-Elect Robert Atkinson at Christopher Newport University (atkinson@cnu.edu) serves as the coordinator and Program Chair for the 2016 Fall Undergraduate Research Meeting. Specific details about the Undergraduate Research Grant Applications, along with the submission procedure, and information about Fall Meeting Registration will be made available on the VAS website in late summer and early fall.
