What is the Scholarly Research Project?

Welcome to the Scholarly Research Project (SRP) website! Please consider this site as your first point of contact for all items to your SRP.

As you navigate through the various tabs, you will learn exactly what constitutes an SRP; what are keys for a successful project; what are the steps for successful completion of your project and what are the pitfalls to avoid during your research time. You will also find pertinent news and information on finding a mentor, featured posts of students, as well as items of interest from past Scholars Day events.

On behalf of the SRP administration, we invite you to check this website frequently, to take full advantage of all of the information offered, and most importantly, to have a wonderful educational experience during your SRP.
