The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) at Lamar University (LU) is seeking proposals from undergraduate students to support their research and creative activities. The program is meant to encourage undergraduate students from all academic areas to participate in scholarly work mentored by at least one LU faculty member. The work on this project should be unique in the sense that no part of it should be financially sponsored or accommodated by a different program (e.g. McNair, STAIRSTEP, ASCENT, Honors etc.) at the time of submission. However, further development of the project beyond the end of the grant is highly encouraged. The written proposal must be created and submitted by the student and approved by the faculty mentor(s). Each student, whose project is deemed meritorious, up to a maximum of fifteen projects, will be awarded a stipend of $500 and up to $1,000 for research support which may include supplies, disposable costs, small equipment, software, analyzes services, research-related travel (excluding conference travel), etc.
