Now in its third year, the Elliott School Undergraduate Scholars program is an enhanced independent research opportunity for promising Elliott School undergraduates.  The program provides Scholars with support and resources to produce polished and meaningful work that can be submitted for publication, conference participation, or as part of grant, fellowship or graduate study applications.  Students meet weekly to learn how to conduct research and how to use that work to help advance their academic and professional plans.  They work closely with faculty advisors and Elliott School graduate student mentors and benefit from peer feedback and support.
