The Glenn M. Nagel Undergraduate Research Fellowship awards $1,000 to a declared undergraduate biological sciences or chemistry/biochemistry major in the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics to engage in undergraduate research with a CNSM faculty member.
This fellowship is awarded in honor of Dr. Glenn M. Nagel, Dean of the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics during the years 1996-2003. Dr. Nagel was an outstanding scientist and during his time as a faculty member of Cal State Fullerton, was honored as an Outstanding Professor who mentored large numbers of undergraduate and graduate students. At CSULB he oversaw the development of the Molecular and Life Sciences Center and vigorously promoted undergraduate research. The Glenn M. Nagel Undergraduate Research Fellowship is inspired by Dr. Nagel's own life-altering undergraduate research experience. The Nagel Research Fellowship recognizes and supports an outstanding undergraduate engaged in research during the summer semester with a faculty member in the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics.
Applications are due Thursday, February 27, 2015 at 4:00 p.m. in the Center for Scholarship Information, USU-238.
Selection will be made by a faculty committee convened by the Dean.
The recipient of the Glenn M. Nagel Undergraduate Research Fellowship will be recognized in an award ceremony held in the department of the student's major. The recipient will be encouraged to present the results of the research at the annual CNSM Student Research Symposium held early each fall semester and to acknowledge support received from the Glenn M. Nagel Undergraduate Research Fellowship in publications involving the research completed during the period of support.
