Undergraduate Research/Student Experience
Short Takes from the Grounds
Steve Plog, U.Va.’s David A. Harrison Professor of Historical Archaeology, discusses the importance of field research as a crucial facet of students’ learning experience.
Students work side-by-side with leading research faculty, report findings at academic conferences, submit scholarly articles to professional journals, and present work at research symposia across the country. Undergraduate research, a high priority across the University, is advancing academic programs in every school, center, and program on the Grounds.
The University is seeking funds to make undergraduate research stipends available to many more students. Our goal is to building an endowment of $15 million to generate funding for a variety of student researchers and the faculty who support them. An endowment gift of $100,000 will create a permanent research grant that supports a student researcher every year.
