New student acknowledgement program call for nominations
Rising Researcher recognizes UMass Amherst undergraduate students who excel in research, scholarship and creative activity. Eligible students will be exceptional undergraduates identified by their faculty mentor/advisor who have demonstrated leadership and impact in their chosen area of study. Impact can take the form of research results/scholarly publication; innovation/entrepreneurial activities that may lead to the development of technology or formation of a business; significant contribution to a creative work such as a book, collection of poetry, musical composition, or theater/dance production.
Selected students will be honored at a luncheon with the chancellor, and will receive a personalized award for their achievements. Rising Researchers will be prominently featured in campus communications.
