Spanish Research Opportunities and Collaborations

Students in the Spanish Discipline at Morris can team up with the eminent faculty to conduct research or pursue their own topics of interest. Student research projects are wide-ranging. Some recent examples include:

Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program

Morris Academic Parters

Minority Mentorship Project / Multi-Ethnic Student Mentorship Program

Morris Student Administrative Fellow

Morris students in the Spanish department have also published their work in Metamorphosis, an undergraduate peer-reviewed literary journal.

Financial support for student research is available through several venues. University funding opportunities are consolidated by the Academic Center for Enrichment (ACE). One example is the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP), a University-wide program which provides academically talented students the opportunity to earn up to $1,400 assisting faculty with scholarly and creative projects. Another, the Morris Academic Partners program (MAP), is unique to the Morris campus and provides paid research partnerships to academically talented, qualified third-year students. The standard stipend is $2,000. The Multi-Ethnic Mentorship Program (MMP) affords students of color the opportunity to receive a $2,000 stipend for working with faculty or staff on year-long projects.

Student work at Morris has also been funded by the University of Minnesota’s Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA) and Community Assistance Program (CAP). Faculty research funding obtained independently via grants or from other awards may also create paid positions for students to assist in research projects.
