Oct. 11, 2000 – (Lexington, Ky.) – Undergraduates could turn their classroom work into cold cash by entering the Oswald Research and Creativity Program.

Money aside, the purpose of the program is to encourage research and creative activities by undergraduate students, said Philipp Kraemer, dean of undergraduate studies. Kraemer urges students to enter research papers done either for class or on their own in the categories of science or the humanities.

“This competition is unique on college campuses and provides an excellent opportunity for undergraduates to test their skills and to begin to see their academic work in a serious, professional light,” Kraemer said.

Any undergraduate who does not already have a four-year degree is eligible to enter the program. Registration forms are available in the Office of Undergraduate Studies, Room 206, Gillis Building, or on the Web at www.uky.edu/UGS/.

Awards are $350 for first place in each category, and $250 for second place.
