George T. Barthalmus Undergraduate Research Grants

Dr. George T. Barthalmus was the driving force behind the creation of the State of North Carolina Undergraduate Research and Creativity Symposium. He had a passion for encouraging undergraduates to pursue their interests through the process of research, be it in the sciences, humanities, or through artistic expression. He was an advocate for early involvement of students in the research process as a way to engage and retain students in academics. To this end, the George Barthalmus Undergraduate Research Awards have been developed to promote early involvement in the research process through support of sophomores in a research project of their design. These awards are designed to assist students with development and engagement in undergraduate research. Students from all disciplines are invited to apply for the awards.

Awards will be made to current sophomores only.

Proposals will be reviewed by faculty familiar with the field of study (discipline), and recommendations for funding will be considered by a committee appointed by the SNCURCS advisory board. Students will be notified approximately 1 week prior to the fall symposium, and awards will be presented at the fall symposium.

All grant winners are expected to participate in the symposium in Fall 2019.

Students are encouraged to apply for grants ranging from $100 – $500.
The maximum award is $500.
