Faculty encouraged to nominate exceptional sophomores for Chappell-Lougee scholarships

Applications are due Friday, Dec. 1, for the 2000-01 Chappell-Lougee Scholars program, an opportunity for sophomores to conduct research in the humanities or social sciences. The award, worth up to $2,500, can buy out term-time earnings expectations or pay for research expenses. In addition to academic promise and quality of faculty support, financial need is a selection criterion. At least one quarter of research must be completed before summer 2001.

Faculty members may nominate exceptional sophomores by sending a letter of recommendation to Laura Selznick, director of Undergraduate Research Opportunities (URO), by email (laura.s@forsythe ) or fax (724-5400); attachments may be sent to selznick@leland .

Students may nominate themselves by submitting a cover sheet through the URO website (, their research proposal, a statement of support from a faculty sponsor and a current official transcript; for students being considered for financial aid as part of the scholarship, include a financial aid offer form. Turn in the latter four items to the URO office at 414 Sweet Hall.

For more information contact Laura Selznick, 723-3828; Dean A. Eyre III, 723-3829; or Lorin Sharp, 723-4305.
