The purpose of the Pioneer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (PURF) program is to encourage UW-Platteville undergraduate student participation in research and/or other creative projects under the direction of a faculty research advisor. It is hoped that this opportunity will stimulate the student's interest in pursuing graduate work.


Fellowship recipients and advisors are guests at the PURF luncheon hosted by Provost/Vice Chancellor. Each recipient makes a presentation and is encouraged to present at the annual UW-Platteville Research/Poster Day, state, regional and national meetings. These are their reports.
