Call for Applications! Student Editors for Owl Research Journal and Research Ambassadors
The Office of Undergraduate Research is now calling for applications to join the Student Council for Undergraduate Research and Creativity (SCURC). This fantastic council serves to promote undergraduate research throughout Florida State University, mentor student researchers, and publish The Owl, FSU's Undergraduate Research Journal.
There are two branches of SCURC: the editorial board and the research ambassadors. The editorial board works together closely to market The Owl, obtain and edit manuscripts, design the journal, and market the journal upon release.
The research ambassadors work closely together to promote awareness of undergraduate research. By generating awareness we hope to increase the number of students engaged in research projects at FSU. We also want to convey to students that research is tangible and important. SCURC believes that participating in undergraduate research can add a particular depth to one’s education, allowing students to gain a greater appreciation of their field, insight into how knowledge is constructed, and experience with how research can be used for social change.
This is a rare opportunity to take a leadership role in the research publication process, an experience which would clearly benefit you when applying for graduate school and conducting your own work. The application is due August 2nd, 2013 and can be found here: SCURC Application. You can find out more about the council at our.fsu.edu/ambassador.html and diginole.lib.fsu.edu/owl/
