The Professional Development Office at JHMI is sponsoring
the second part of a two-day grant-writing workshop, open

Provost's Undergraduate Research
In an effort to encourage undergraduates to engage in
research activity, the Provost's
Undergraduate Research Awards program was initiated in
1993. The program was founded on the belief that
involvement in research not only enhances a student's
learning experience but helps develop important skills in
proposal writing, obtaining research funding, carrying out
a project and reporting the results.
Hundreds of students have since participated in projects
embracing topics as diverse as archaeology, art history,
gene development and techno-pop music.
The research is performed in either the summer or the fall,
and any freshman, sophomore or junior in Arts and Sciences,
Engineering, Nursing or Peabody is eligible to apply for
the awards, which are granted in amounts of up to $3,000
with the option of conducting the research for academic
credit. The Hodson Trust has donated funding for this
Applications for summer proposals are due by noon on March
5, and for fall by noon on April 2, in the office of
Theodore O. Poehler, vice provost for research, 276
Garland, Homewood campus.

the Offit building, Mattin Center, Homewood campus. Open to
