Outstanding Undergraduate Research Award
The ISMAA invites submissions for the 2018 Outstanding Undergraduate Research (OUR) Awards. Up to three awards will be given for papers authored and presented by undergraduate students at the upcoming ISMAA meeting. Working in collaboration with a faculty advisor, undergraduate students who wish to apply for the OUR Awards should submit the following materials electronically (either as a PDF or MS Word document):
- A brief, one-page cover letter stating the nature of the project and identifying the researchers involved
- A complete, original research paper
- A letter of support from the faculty advisor which also describes the student's contribution to the work
Submissions may be emailed to the Awards Committee Chair, Michael Sostarecz, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include "OUR Awards" in the subject heading. Papers need not have been submitted for publication in a professional journal at the time of consideration, but must be complete manuscripts, even if only a subset of the research will be presented at the meeting. To be considered, the deadline for OUR Awards submissions is Friday, March 2, 2018.
Applicants should also make arrangements to give a talk in the student session of the 2018 Tri-Sectional Meeting that will be held with the Indiana and Michigan sections on March 23-24, 2018 at Valparaiso University in Valparaiso, Indiana. Applicants will be evaluated both for quality of research and for quality of presentation. Questions? Email email@example.com.
