Your President, Father McShane, has affiliated Fordham University with The Undergraduate Awards, and you are now part of that network of innovative universities, identifying and encouraging the best undergraduate research around the world. The Undergraduate Awards is the world’s largest academic awards program and is unique in that it is pan-discipline, with 25 different categories. Students submit their work for free online, and it is judged by an international panel of industry leaders and academic experts. Winning students are recognized as the best in their field, published in our academic journal and brought to Dublin for an exclusive networking event, the 4-day UA Global Summit.
We find that students are more likely to submit when recommended to do so by their faculty, so we urge you to alert your faculty to this opportunity for their best students.There are 25 different academic categories catering to students from every discipline.
