Kyle Bayliff, senior in physics and chemistry, Maize, is one of 20 Kansas State University students getting a boost with their undergraduate research projects as the inaugural recipients of research and travel grants from the university's Office of Undergraduate Research & Creative Inquiry.
Kyle is the recipient of one of the Undergraduate Research Awards.
"Kansas State University is looking toward the future and meeting our visionary 2025 plan to be a Top 50 public research university," said Anita Cortez, director of the Office of Undergraduate Research & Creative Inquiry. "Undergraduate student research is a key component of our 2025 plan and is a highly beneficial aspect of the educational experience in preparation for students' next steps, whether that be graduate or professional school or entering industry."
The Undergraduate Research Award grants are $1,000 for the semester. Recipients work under the guidance of a faculty research mentor. They get the opportunity to network with other researchers, make contributions to their research field, and present, perform or exhibit their work publically.
The Office of Undergraduate Research & Creative Inquiry will offer grants every semester, including the summer term. The deadline to apply for the summer research and travel grants is Feb. 27.
