Dear Students,

You are strongly encouraged to consider applying for a new award to help fund summer undergraduate research. 

Dear Students,

Anita Qualls, an honors student majoring in Biology, has become UGA's first student to receive a Churchill Scholarship. The Churchill Scholarship funds American students to pursue a one-year masters in science, mathematics, and engineering at The University of Cambridge in England.

Congratulations to UGA Biology and Anthropology students William Walker and Anna Brachey, whose papers have been published in The Classic, the Writing Intensive Program’s journal of undergraduate writing and research. Their work is part of the Bioarcheology Special Issue 3.1.

Undergraduate Research in Biology

Undergraduates majoring in biology have the opportunity to enhance their learning through direct participation in research and scholarship. At UGA, these opportunities enable undergraduates to participate in ground-breaking research, often as part of a team of graduate students and faculty. In fact, many students can earn academic credit while working under an experienced faculty mentor by taking BIOL 4960R or working directly with the Center for Undergraduate Research Opportunities (CURO). The Biological Sciences Undergraduate Research Fellowship (BSURF) has been established to support undergraduate research opportunities in the Division of Biological Sciences within the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences. The Fellowship provides financial assistance to a student who has not had an opportunity to participate in a mentored research experience (paid, volunteer, or for credit) since matriculating to The University of Georgia.
