Holster Scholars First Year Project Information Session

7:00pm – 8:00pm

Storrs Campus
Buckley Classroom

The Holster Scholars First Year Project is a highly selective enrichment opportunity for curious first-year Honors students that supports a small number of motivated students interested in independent research the summer following their first year. Holster projects are in-depth, individualized learning experiences. Beyond some basic requirements, projects are self-designed. Scholars receive $4,000 in research support to complete their projects during the summer under the guidance of a faculty member.

Interested in learning more? If so, please join us on Monday, September 18 at 7:00pm in the Buckley Classroom. The session will be led by Dr. Vin Moscardelli, Director of the Office of National Scholarships and Fellowships.
