Research support for faculty through the URGO Summer Research Program

submitted by kipperj@augsburg.edu

The URGO Summer Research Program is designed to enhance undergraduate student learning and support faculty research and creative activity here on campus. Faculty are the driving force behind the research program, and we want it to be as beneficial to you as possible.
While summer is the perfect time to push research projects ahead, we know all too well how quickly the time goes. We have research grants for 400, 200, and 100 student research hours that are designed to provide you with the optimal amount of student research support needed for your project. The 100-hour research assistantship is a particularly good fit if you have needs for data entry, transcription, or literature review.
Some of you may have already been approached by students who would like to do summer research through URGO. We encourage you to think about how these students might support your own research agenda. While some advanced students might have a project in mind, we have found that students benefit the most from working within a faculty member’s area of expertise and current line of inquiry.
To learn more about URGO summer research and working with a student, visit the “on-campus research” page on the URGO website: www.augsburg.edu/urgo.
Please encourage interested students to attend our final Summer Research Information Session, where they will hear from students who have previously completed the experience and get guidance on completing the summer research application: December 5, 5pm in OGC 100.
