Pioneer Undergraduate Research Fellowship - PURF Luncheon

Friday, March 7, 2014 - 8:00am to 4:00pm

The Pioneer Undergraduate Research Fellowship is designed to support and encourage meaningful undergraduate student research and scholarly activities under the direction of a faculty research advisor. 

Research is defined as scholarly activity; including laboratory findings, qualitative research, creative productions, and other similar projects.

Individual students in every major are eligible and are encouraged to apply; no group projects are awarded. The Associate Deans of each of the three Colleges at UW-Platteville evaluate the proposals to determine the PURF winners.

Students receving PURF Awards are required to participate in the annual Undergraduate Research and Creative Endeavors Symposium and will have their manuscripts published in The Pioneer Journal, the online journal for the Office of Undergraduate Research and Creative Endeavors.

The deadline for student proposals is Friday, March 7, 2014 followed by a luncheon for the awardees on Friday, April 25. An increased amount for the awards are available: $2500 maximum with a possible $1,000 student stipend. Applications may be electronically submitted or delivered to the URCE Office at 515 Pioneer Tower.  All application materials can be found on the PURF link at the URCE website:
