The award ceremony took place today Tuesday 19th September for the 5th UL40 S&E Summer Research Scholarship Programme. The aim of the programme is to expose undergraduate students to research and the research environment, to ultimately encourage them to apply for postgraduate research funding, so that they can continue their studies to Masters or PhD Levels.
The programme also has a second goal of supporting Academics to investigate new areas of research, or to work on research funding grant proposals. The programme ran over the 10 weeks summer semester and was co-funded by the S&E Faculty and individual S&E Departments and Research Projects. 30 Students participated in this year’s programme.
