Miller Center Seeks Applicants for Undergraduate Research Award

December 09, 2009

December 9, 2009 — The Miller Center Undergraduate Research Award will provide $4,000 to a University of Virginia undergraduate student and $1,000 to his or her faculty adviser for completion of a major research project to be carried out during the summer of 2010 and the 2010-11 academic year.

Students have the option of choosing their adviser either from Miller Center faculty or non-Miller Center faculty.

Faculty advisors from Grounds should work within disciplines related to the work of the Miller Center and the research project should centrally utilize the Miller Center's resources, including our archives, presidential oral histories, presidential recordings, American President: An Online Reference Resource, and/or commission reports.

Students choosing advisers from among Miller Center faculty will be given preference for this award.

Applications are due Jan. 15. Applicants will be notified of the selection committee's decision in March. The final project will be submitted to and presented at the Miller Center in April 2011.
