UMaine Students Awarded for Research Projects 

Several undergraduate students at UMaine showed off research projects they’ve been working on all semester Tuesday.

The projects were from many disciplines of study.  Judges took a look at the exhibits and awarded a variety of prizes.

Students were also able to submit project proposals for a $3,000 grant.

“Basically this is an exercise for the student to not only learn how to present themselves and their project but also learn how to write proposals when they go out of the place and go to agencies to work on new projects,” says Ali Abedi, director of the Center for Undergraduate Research, or CUGR.
The $3,000 CUGR Summer Fellowship Awards were given to: Danielle Walczak, Gwendolyn Beacham, Marissa Bovie, Tyler Roy, Julia Sell, Torey Bowser, Katrina Harris, Amy Fish, Taylor Merk-Wynne and Juliana Pereira.
Best Exhibit at the showcase went to Nicole Curtis-Bray; First Place in Oral Presentation went to Paige Martin; and First Place Poster was awarded to Samuel Hatch and Emily Blackwood.
