Undergraduate Research Scholar Designation

The Undergraduate Research Scholar transcript designation is given to more fully recognize the accomplishments of the University of Memphis' undergraduate researchers.

All undergraduates are eligible to earn the Undergraduate Research Scholar designation. Candidates for the transcript designation must:

  • Present their research or creative projects at a University of Memphis campus research symposium that is open to the public. Many students present at Works in Progress Symposium and/or the Student Research Forum.
  • Present their research or creative projects at the National Conferences for Undergraduate Research or a professional conference in the field of study (e.g., one not specially designated for students, such as the American Psychological Association convention).
  • Have the endorsement of the faculty mentor(s).

Contact the Helen Hardin Honors College for additional information about this transcript designation.
