University Scholars Program
Business and accounting majors with a 3.25 or better UF GPA are eligible to participate in the University Scholars Program. Students must meet eligibility requirements at the time of application.
Students should plan to begin their research project in Summer 2013 and continue working on the project throughout the 2013 – 2014 academic year. University Scholars are required to enroll in a "Special Topics" course (GEB 4906) in the Summer C, Fall, and Spring semesters. Upon completion of the research project, students must write a properly formatted research paper and submit it to the UF Journal of Undergraduate Research (JUR) or to another scholarly journal for publication. Students are also required to give an oral presentation on their research at the University Scholars Symposium, which is held in April.
Note: The required research paper for this program can also be used to fulfill College honors thesis requirements.
Applications for the University Scholars Program must be submitted directly to the Heavener School of Business in 233 Bryan Hall no later than February 28. Application packages must contain the following:
- University Scholars Program Application
- A typed summary of the proposed research project
- Letter of support from a faculty mentor
- Copy of academic transcript
Applications and support documentation will be reviewed by the Heavener School of Business. The School will notify students, faculty mentors, and departments of the awards March 8.
