The Office of Engaged Scholarship & Learning supports two awards: The Engaged Scholar Award for Undergraduate Research and The Engaged Scholar Award for Creative Works. These awards provide undergraduate students with the opportunity to fund original academic research or a creative works project. Receiving an ESA will help you:
Gain real-world experience. Develop a new project by submitting a formal project proposal.
Experience one-on-one mentoring. Work directly with a faculty mentor to map out your project step-by-step.
Apply your skills. Achieve project goals through rigor beyond what you may encounter in a classroom setting alone.
Build your CV, résumé, or portfolio. Present your project to a public audience to gain experience, exposure, and credibility in your field of study.
The application will open Monday, May 14 online (log into MyUTRGV and select the "Submittable" application in your dashboard) and will continue until Friday, June 8.
The deadline for Fall 2018 funding is Friday, June 8, 2018.
Please review our ESA Policies for additional information.
