Office of Student Research
Truman provides many different venues for both undergraduate and graduate students to participate in original research, whether classroom-based or faculty-directed research projects. There are also several summer research programs dedicated to fostering student research, such as the McNair Program and the TruScholars Program.
In addition, a student who is research-oriented or who plans to seek advanced training in his or her field may develop a research program that culminates in a research project with professors such as a capstone project. Truman students have published their research findings in national journals, presented at professional conferences, and participated in Truman’s annual Student Research Conference.
The Office of Student Research is seeking applications for students interested in presenting at the Virtual Midwest Regional Undergraduate Research, Scholarly and Creative Activity (URSCA) Conference. This conference is sponsored by the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges (COPLAC) and hosted by Truman State University. Ten abstracts highlighting different disciplines across campus will be selected to represent Truman at the Virtual URSCA on October 2-3. Students applying to present at the Virtual URSCA should be able to dedicate time on October 2-3 to participate in the virtual conference. Applications are due Friday, August 28th.
The Office of Student Research is accepting Grants-in-Aid of Scholarship and Research (GIASR) applications for research and creative scholarship conducted Fall 2020. Grant applications may request up to $750 and can cover student stipends, supplies and travel to conduct research. A virtual GIASR proposal writing workshop for students will be held August 24th from 3:30-5:00 pm. Applications are due Friday, August 28th.
