URGO Academic-Year Research Application Available

submitted by obrienk@augsburg.edu

Each year URGO offers $1,000 research grants for undergraduates who wish to gain research experience with an Augsburg faculty member. These grants require 100 hours of research over the course of the academic year and are a great way to ease into research or to continue work on an existing project.

The application is available at the URGO website (www.augsburg.edu/urgo) at the “on-campus research” page. Grants are awarded on a rolling basis, so student-faculty research teams are encouraged to submit proposals in the fall. The URGO Advisory Committee meets bi-monthly and will begin reviewing proposals September 10th.

If you have any questions about undergraduate research opportunities, please contact Kirsten O’Brien at obrienk@augsburg.edu or x1446.

Cleaning out your office?

Join MNUDL’s Back-To-Debate Supply Drive

Your gently-used donation will prepare our debaters for success

The Minnesota Urban Debate League, a program of Augsburg University, equips Twin Cities students with all the basics needed to become debaters: curriculum, coaches, tournaments, and supplies. As our high school, middle school, Spanish, and Somali debate programs grow each year, our need for supplies grows, too.

Our goal is to equip 100 more students with debate supplies in the 2018-19 school year!

Our MOST-NEEDED ITEM is expanding file folders/accordion folders!

Other helpful (new or gently used) items:
● 3-hole sheet protectors
● 2-pocket folders
● Highlighters
● Pens

Your support will help make our debate season a success!

Items can be picked up or dropped off at Augsburg University.
If you’d like to join our Back-to-Debate Supply Drive, please
contact us at mnudl@augsburg.edu to arrange your donation.
