The Adrian Tinsley Program for Undergraduate Research (ATP) gives students the opportunity to do one-on-one mentored work on a project of their own design--either research-based or creative. Any undergraduate, regardless of major or GPA, is eligible to participate in the program. Working with their faculty mentors, students develop a significant question on a subject both personally important to them as well as professionally important to the area of study they are working in and conduct their work either during the semester (with the financial support of a semester grant) or the summer (with the substantial financial support of a summer research grant).
The project may include laboratory research in the physical and life sciences; research in education, mathematics and business; scholarship in the humanities and social sciences; creative writing; and stage performances, displays or research in the visual arts and design.
