Tanvi Parmar, Staff Reporter

Today from 12:30 to 2:00 p.m. at Mather Memorial 225, the Support of Undergraduate Research & Creative Endeavors (SOURCE) office will hold an information session for Arts, Humanities and Social Science students.
SOURCE works by division to help students learn about projects and opportunities to assist faculty with research. Additionally, the office provides students with a way to receive funding to participate in these types of endeavors.

On the evenings of Jan. 13 to 16 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., SOURCE worked with the Undergraduate Student Government (USG)’s Academic Affairs committee to host information tables at Fribley and Leutner Dining Halls to discuss research opportunities, particularly for non-STEM (science, engineering, technology and math) majors.

“We know there is student interest and we want to make sure students are aware of funding possibilities,” said Dr. Sheila Pedigo, SOURCE director.

The office has also extended SOURCE summer funding applications, specifically and only for arts, humanities and social science students to Sunday, March 2. Interested students can contact the SOURCE office in Sears.
