Hot Springs students receive research awards

LITTLE ROCK -- Brock Butler and Joshua Miller, both of Hot Springs, were among 79 University of Arkansas at Little Rock students recently selected as inaugural recipients of the Undergraduate Research Signature Experience Awards for the spring semester.

Chancellor Andrew Rogerson introduced the awards this fall to inspire UALR undergraduate students to conduct research and creative projects. Each of the recipients will receive up to $1,000 to cover the cost of materials for a one-semester signature experience in research or creative works.

"It is our goal for all students to have the opportunity to have a Signature Experience during their time at UA Little Rock -- one in which they actively engage in creative work with faculty," Rogerson said.

"Not only will their academic experience be enriched by these connections, but they in turn will enrich the lives of others who benefit from the research. It is also my hope that it will help students engage with their major and consider graduate school."
