On behalf of the Undergraduate Research and Creative Scholarship Committee, thank you for being an integral part of UMCUR 2020! We appreciate everyone’s extra efforts in presenting their best work and especially appreciate your resilience and adaptability with this year’s new digital format.

Selecting winners was extremely difficult this year, and special thanks to our judges for stepping up. Each of the more than 100 student projects was reviewed and ranked by multiple judges according to the UMCUR rubric criterion. Judges’ comments reflected an enthusiasm for students’ communication skills, and for the quality and creativity of their projects. We sincerely hope that all participants will continue to pursue their scholarly interests and creative aspirations.

Please join me in congratulating the following students (and their mentors) as the 2020 UMCUR Award Winners. And thanks again to everyone who made this year’s event such a success!
