    The College of Law and College of Social Science are pleased to sponsor a Prelaw Mentoring Program partnering law student mentors with undergraduates at MSU. Program goals are to enhance the prelaw advising experience, including providing expert assistance in preparing law school applications, and to connect some of MSU’s most highly motivated students with the College of Law. 

    The program welcomes applications from sophomores, juniors, and seniors from all majors within MSU. Applicants may just be starting to explore the possibility of attending law school or may already be committed to pursing a legal education. 

    To apply, please complete the online application and submit the form electronically as indicated. Be sure to note that each application must be supported by a letter of recommendation. To facilitate the recommendation process, first talk with the professor and ask for a recommendation. Then, as you complete the application form for the Prelaw Mentoring Program, list your recommender’s name and email address in the appropriate spaces. Once the Prelaw Mentoring Program application is submitted, the recommender will receive an online link to complete the recommendation. All recommenders must be faculty members or other instructors with whom the applicant has completed a course. Academic advisors, coaches, employers, and mentors are not appropriate for this purpose. 

    All application materials (including the letter of recommendation) must be submitted online by August 23, 2019. Consider applying early so that faculty members will have time to submit their letters by the August 23rd deadline. 

    Overall, the Prelaw Mentoring Program provides: 

    • one-on-one mentoring of MSU undergraduates by students in the College of Law, who will be available to share their personal perspectives on the law school experience and offer advice on applying to law schools, preparing competitive applications, choosing law schools, and other related matters.
    • special opportunities to attend seminars and other events specifically designed for mentees by the College of Law, including attending classes and several gatherings each semester for all participants in the program.
    • opportunities in the College of Law and other sources for prelaw advising and assistance with applying to law schools, including campus events sponsored by the Office of Admissions and webinars with experts around the nation on topics such as taking the LSAT, writing effective personal statements, organizing successful applications, and career opportunities for those with the J.D. degree.

    Specific activities include:

    • an orientation for mentees at the start of the Fall semester
    • a meet-and-greet reception for mentors and mentees in early September and a variety of other organized events throughout the academic year.
    • attending classes in the College of Law.
    • events hosted by the College of Law, including webinars and Spartan Preview Day.
    • messages from the Coordinator and the College of Law highlighting opportunities across campus to learn more about law school and the legal profession.
    • a reception at the end of the academic year, including a certificate ceremony for those who successfully complete the program. 

    Mentee responsibilities include:

    • meeting with assigned mentors on an individual basis at least once each semester.
    • attending all scheduled activities, including a mandatory orientation and the meet-and-greet reception in September, to the extent allowed by class schedules.
    • responding promptly to communications from mentors and the Coordinator.
    • always behaving with the highest levels of respect and professionalism with mentors and others associated with the program.
    • being mindful of the time constraints of mentors, including their exam schedules and other deadlines.
    • providing feedback when requested throughout the academic year so that the program can be evaluated and improved.

Provost's Undergraduate Research Initiative

Who qualifies: Undergraduates with a 2.0 GPA or better

How much: $1000 per semester, up to $2000 per academic year

How it can be used: Undergraduate research

Proposals are due September 11, 2019

APPLY

    The CSS-PURI program provides talented undergraduates, from first-year students to seniors, with an opportunity to work closely with faculty on substantial research projects—usually, but not exclusively, as part of the faculty member’s own scholarly project.  Student researchers report that their experiences have been transformative, enabling them to integrate and apply the knowledge, methods, and skills they have learned in new and challenging environments outside the classroom.  Many have delivered conference papers, shared authorship of published articles, or presented work at the University Undergraduate Research and Arts Forum (UURAF) based on the research they have conducted as part of this program. 

    The College requests CSS-PURI proposals from faculty who wish to participate in this program.  Student researchers have usually worked either one-on-one with a faculty member or as members of a research team involving faculty and graduate students.  Both models are acceptable. The College will also consider funding innovative approaches to undergraduate research, including unit or multi-unit research training programs for first-year students or projects attached to study away or study abroad programs.

    Proposals are due on Wednesday, September 11.  Decisions will be taken by Friday, September 20.

    PROPOSAL

    Faculty proposals must include the following information and must be submitted through a form on the CSS website.  Late proposals will be considered if funding is available.

    Faculty must submit using the online form system

    Elements of the application must include:

    • Completed application form.

    • Abstract.  A statement about the research project, its stage in development, and the specific research tasks to be assigned to the undergraduate researcher(s). This statement must include the beginning and end date of each student’s involvement in the project and a description of the final research product to be delivered by each student.  We require students to present their research at UURAF (with waivers of this requirement in exceptional circumstances).  A commitment to UURAF should be evident in the application.

    • Outcomes.  A statement of student learning outcomes and how those outcomes will be assessed by the faculty mentor.

    • Budget Proposal.  A budget that states precisely how the funds will be spent (see below for guidelines).  It is important to comply with these guidelines.

    • The name(s) of the student(s) selected, if available at the time of submission. Proposals that name one or more specific undergraduates who have agreed to participate in the program will be given priority. We will also consider proposals that do not name particular students. If your proposal involves more than one student, include one student on the proposal, name the other(s) in the narrative, and collect emails acknowledging participation from all students. It is not necessary to submit separate applications for each student. Note that student duties and learning outcomes must be specified for each student researcher individually.  

    BUDGET GUIDELINES:

    CSS-PURI funds may be allocated as follows: 

    1) Stipend or travel for undergraduate research must make up at least 80% of the total budget. Since there are other funds available to support travel (see below), we ask that applications minimize travel costs to the extent possible.

    2) No more than 20% can be used for supplies/equipment related to the research. 

    The sponsoring department or school will be responsible for the administration of funds, including ensuring proper allocation and expenditure. As in past years, PURI awards require unit matching of 25%. So an award that is for the maximum amount of $2,000 for fall and spring will require a $500 match from the unit.

    The College of Social Science and the Office of Undergraduate Research have separate travel funds available to student researchers. Student researchers are eligible to apply. Travel funds require unit matching, and the College also provides matching funds.  For additional information, please contact Renée Davis, davissr@msu.edu.

    Note that for the past several years, Summer PURI funds were available, with an application process in late Spring, so do not include Summer requests in this round of proposals.

    PROPOSAL ASSESSMENT:

    The budget for PURI is limited and the awards are made on a competitive basis. Proposals will be ranked based on

    • The extent to which projects meet the purpose of the program, which is to help undergraduate students develop advanced research skills in the social, economic, and behavioral sciences that they will apply as advanced undergraduates, in their careers, or in graduate or professional school.

    • How much faculty are involved as mentors in helping students understand the nature of research in a field, its application and significance within scholarship or the professions, and the importance of ethical practice in the research.

    • The extent to which students have the opportunity to demonstrate the accomplishment of the learning goals during the work phase of the project, in their presentations at UURAF, and after their involvement in the project. 

    • How clear and appropriate the learning goals are. The goals might vary with the level research experience of the student and could include demonstrating

      • mastery of key technologies, techniques, or methods relevant to research within the discipline;

      • ethical research practices;

      • the ability to analyze, interpret, or synthesize evidence gathered through primary and secondary research;

      • the ability to present or write research results for scholarly or professional audiences. 

    ELIGIBILITY

    Faculty must hold an appointment (including joint appointments) in the College of Social Science.  Student researchers must be enrolled College of Social Science majors (second majors are acceptable) with a 2.0 GPA or better. Priority will be given to students who have not graduated before, or will not graduate during, the PURI funding period. The research can be conducted at MSU, in the USA, or internationally. Team projects that include multiple faculty, graduate students or undergraduates are eligible for consideration, and faculty can propose to fund more than one undergraduate under this program.  However, the specific duties, research products, and learning outcomes must be stated for each student researcher individually.

    REPORTING & PROGRAM ASSESSMENT DUE APRIL 20, 2020:

    CSS and the Office of the Provost require reporting and assessment. Every year it is a challenge to get these reports, so please mark your calendars. Each faculty and student participant must submit a written report to the Associate Dean of Academic & Student Affairs detailing the research outcomes for the project, an assessment of student learning outcomes (proposed and achieved), and the expenditure of funds (the latter provided by the faculty member).  Please ask your student researcher to submit her/his report to you and then forward both to me as a package.  

    By April 20, 2020, the following information should be submitted to my office:

    • Name of student(s) supported (no PID numbers).

    • Detailed information on expenditures (a required reporting form will be supplied).

      • Scholarships and stipends

      • Supplies and equipment

      • Conference registration and travel

      • Other

    • Assessment of the student’s achievement of learning objectives and an overall evaluation of the student’s contribution to the advancement of the research.

    • Any presentations, abstracts or publications arising from the research (including citations if applicable, and including anticipated conference presentations and publications).

    • Other indicators of quality.

    • A 250-word report from the student, summarizing his/her accomplishments and reflecting on the competencies he/she gained from the experience.

How you will benefit: Opportunity to have an enriched independent research experience in the social sciences with a faculty mentor

Deadline to apply is February 1, 2020

APPLY

  • Read More

    Eligibility

    Students with a primary or secondary major in the College of Social Science are eligible to be nominated for a Dean’s Assistantship. Juniors and seniors are eligible. The proposed research project normally will be an independent research project in which the student is the primary investigator. However, students who have primary responsibility for a discrete portion of a faculty member’s larger research project may submit proposals. All student researchers must have a faculty sponsor who has agreed to serve as a mentor for the period of the assistantship.

    Nominations

    Students who are interested in a Dean’s Assistantship are encouraged to contact faculty to propose projects, refine the research plan, and collaborate on the nomination and application processes. Faculty and advisers also are urged to approach highly-qualified students to suggest nomination for this competitive assistantship.

    Procedures

    • The chair or director solicits nominations for the Dean’s Assistantship from faculty. Nominees must then submit an application for the program to the chair or director. The application must include a research proposal, resume, and a letter of support from a faculty sponsor [the letter must express the faculty member’s commitment to mentor the student during her/his research experience]. The research product or outcome—and the form in which it will be submitted—must be specified in the proposal. The chair or director should only forward nominees to the College who submit a research proposal that promises to make a substantial contribution to the scholarship in the field and which can be completed within one academic year. The role of the faculty sponsor must be clearly established, including mentorship, oversight, ownership of research products, authorships, and other relevant details. The chair or director is responsible for oversight of the student researcher and the faculty sponsor.

    • The student researcher must meet as per agreement with her/his faculty sponsor, provide bi-weekly reports to the faculty sponsor (including time spent on the project), and deliver all research products as scheduled. Furthermore, a dean’s assistant must apply to present her/his research findings at the University Undergraduate Research and Arts Forum (UURAF) in the spring of the academic year in which the award is granted. Failure to comply with these guidelines may result in forfeiture of the student’s assistantship. Students who leave the College of Social Science during the period of the assistantship will thereby forfeit their assistantship.

    • Faculty sponsors are expected to serve as mentors throughout the duration of the assistantship. They are responsible for monitoring research progress, aiding students in resolving research problems, providing advice on appropriate methods, regulations, and ethics in conducting research, reviewing research products, and maintaining records of student work.

    • The student researcher and faculty sponsor are required to submit a report to the chair or director at the end of the assistantship. The chair or director will review the report and forward it to the Associate Dean for Academic and Student Affairs for review. Chairs and directors should return inadequate reports to the author for revision and resubmission.

    • Both student researchers and faculty sponsors should contact the chair or director of the sponsoring department or school to resolve disagreements or to report potential violations of University policies. Chairs and directors will consult with the Associate Dean for Academic and Student affairs when such issues cannot be resolved at the unit level.

    • The student researcher is required to provide the Associate Dean for Academic and Student Affairs with notification of the publication, presentation, or recognition of research sponsored by the dean’s assistantship program.

    • The student researcher is required to send a letter of acceptance to the Dean of the College of Social Science, Rachel Croson, upon notification of the assistantship award.

    For Students: Preparing the Application

    A student who has been nominated for a Dean's Assistantship must submit an 8-part application to the chair or director of the sponsoring department or school. The application will consist of a completed application form; a resume; a one-page abstract; an introduction that includes a clear statement of the hypothesis to be tested; a description of the methodology to be employed; a discussion ofthe outcomes and future application of the research; a bibliography; and a letter of support from the faculty sponsor. The application should not exceed 10 double-space pages [12 pt. font], excluding the faculty sponsor letter of support.

    Although there is no rigid format for the proposal, the guidelines below shoud be useful. You may deviate from them where you believe an alternate format will provide a clearer and more convincing presentation of your ideas and plans.

    Application Form

    The Dean’s Assistantship application form is now available online.  All parts must be completed to upload into application.

    1. Abstract - A brief overview of your project helps to orient the Committee to what will follow. One page is sufficient. Provide a brief statement of the background or context in which your research is set, a statement of the hypothesis (or hypotheses) which you will test, the experiment or project which you will carry out to evaluate the hypothesis, and the way in which the data or evidence will be examined in order to evaluate the hypothesis. Finally, include a brief statement about the scholarly significance of your research.

      VIEW EXAMPLE

    2. Introduction - The introduction should be a review of the scholarship related to your proposed research. Although the final written report of your project should include a scholarly review of relevant literature, the literature review in the proposal is usually far less comprehensive. The introduction should also make the case for the significance of the problem.

    3. Methodology - The methods section should describe the methods you will use to gather data or evidence. A rule of thumb is to include everything that someone else would need to know to replicate your work. If some decisions about the details of the methodology will depend upon work that you will carry out early in the project, be sure to discuss those decisions and how you will go about making them. Finally, acknowledge any rules regarding research with humans or animals with which your research must and will comply, including compliance with MSU’s Institutional Review Board (IRB) policies and procedures.

    4. Outcomes - State the specific research product(s) that you will submit to your faculty sponsor at the end of the assistantship [usually an article-length paper, but other formats are acceptable upon approval]. Explain the potential significance of the work, what future research or publications you anticipate will result from it, and whether you believe it will stimulate further scholarly inquiry within your field.

    5. Bibliography - List the references that you cited or consulted to prepare your proposal.

    6. Resume - Copy of most recent resume.

    7. Letter of Recommendation - The role of the faculty sponsor is critical to the success of your project. Although you are expected to take primary responsibility for carrying out your project, it is inevitable that the wisdom, expertise, and resources of your faculty research sponsor will be called upon frequently as you proceed with your work. Although there is not necessarily a “best” model for the arrangement between student and sponsor to ensure appropriate faculty involvement, in most cases students should expect to have significant contact with their sponsor at least bi-weekly. The Associate Dean for Academic and Student Affairs and the College Scholarship Committee require evidence of that degree of commitment from your faculty research sponsor. This should include a specific statement of contact hours between student and faculty and a detailed statement of the form and frequency of reports and delivery of written work. The committee also wants to know your sponsor’s appraisal of your strengths and weaknesses, and his/her opinion of your ability to carry out the project that you have proposed.

    Note: Submission of an application for a Dean’s Assistantship authorizes the Associate Dean for Academic and Student Affairs to access your student academic records.

    Awards

    Dean’s Assistantships provide support for one academic year as an Undergraduate Assistant with a stipend of approximately $4000 - $4500. The Assistantship is a quarter time appointment, meaning that students are being compensated at a rate that implies an average of approximately ten hours per week spent on the project.

    For students who have financial aid packages, this appointment may change the composition of your aid package. Please contact Financial Aid for more information.

    The number of proposals funded will depend in part upon the number and quality of the applications.
