Oregon State University recognizes significant engagement and accomplishment in undergraduate research and the arts by awarding an honor distinction of “OSU Undergraduate Research Fellow” or “OSU Undergraduate Arts Fellow” to students in any major upon completion of a significant research or creative arts project under faculty mentorship. The distinction will be noted on the student’s transcript, and the student may wear a blue honor cord at graduation ceremonies.
Students seeking this transcript notation must have performed a significant research/creative project under the guidance of an OSU professor (mentor) and make a presentation of their project to a wider audience than the circle around the mentor. They must show evidence of their presentation and place documentation of the project in the OSU Scholars archive.
“Research/Creativity” is defined here as modes of scholarship and inquiry as they are variously practiced and defined in OSU’s academic disciplines.
