The Provost’s Award for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity seeks to recognize students that have gone above and beyond in their respective fields. The five categories awarded each spring include Performing and Creative Arts, Social and Applied Sciences, Natural and Mathematical Sciences, Professional Inquiry, and Humanities.
These students have been mentored by IU faculty members in their field. Many have found that their mentors played a pivotal role in their success. Provost’s Award recipients receive a certificate commemorating their achievement. Faculty mentors receive a research grant to fund future projects sponsored by the Offices of the Provost, Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education, and Vice Provost for Faculty and academic Affairs.
