National Undergraduate Research Week, which takes place this year from April 11-16, was instituted to recognize undergraduate research projects and the importance of providing research opportunities for students. In conjunction with Undergraduate Research Week, APSA showcases undergraduate research projects submitted by political science faculty and departments.
Featured research is the result of undergraduate coursework, capstone research, and departmental or institution-wide undergraduate research efforts. Members from all over the country wrote in about about students who have written honors theses, presented at conferences, and won awards for their research. We are pleased to recognize the students who conducted the research and the mentors who supervised their efforts.
