Nominations Open for Rising Researcher Student Awards

Nominate a UMass Amherst undergraduate who has demonstrated leadership and excellence in their area of study to be the next Rising Researcher.

Faculty members are encouraged to nominate eligible students who are under their supervision. Nominations submitted by faculty members or administrators other than the student’s advisor are permitted, but must include adequate information about the nominee’s research and scholarly accomplishments on which the selection committee can base their decision. Students receive an acrylic award, publicity about their achievement in campus communications and an opportunity to meet the chancellor.
