Jessica MacNair receives George T. Barthalmus Undergraduate Research Grant
Congratulations to Jessica MacNair on being selected as a recipient for the first George T. Barthalmus Undergraduate Research Grant! Jessica will represent UNCG at the 2012 State of North Carolina Undergraduate Research and Creativity Symposium (SNCURCS) in November 2012 at Duke University.
Dr. George T. Barthalmus (1942-2011) was the driving force behind the creation of the State of North Carolina Undergraduate Research and Creativity Symposium. He had a passion for encouraging undergraduates to pursue their interests through the process of research, be it in the sciences, humanities, or through artistic expression. He was an advocate for early involvement of students in the research process as a way to engage and retain students in academics.
To this end, the George Barthalmus Undergraduate Research Awards have been developed to promote early involvement in the research process through support of sophomores in a research project of their design. These awards are designed to assist students with development and engagement in undergraduate research. Students from all disciplines were invited to apply for the awards.
