Hollingsworth Undergraduate Research Program
The Department of Economics Hollingsworth Undergraduate Research Program is designed to encourage collaborative research between faculty and students.
All Furman students are eligible, but priority will be given to economics majors with strong academic qualifications who have not yet graduated.
1. Each research team will consist of one or two faculty members and one to three students. Projects may be conceived by the student in consultation with a faculty member in the Department of Economics, or they may originate with the faculty member. A student need not have a project in mind in order to apply for the program.
2. Participating students will work approximately 320 to 400 hours (full-time for eight to ten weeks); they may not attend summer school or hold other jobs.
3. Student participants will present the results of their summer projects at one or more seminars on the Furman campus during the subsequent academic year. Students should also expect to produce a research poster that illustrates the research question, methodology, and important findings of the research project.
4. Each student's research will culminate in a written paper that she/he should submit for presentation at an appropriate conference and/or for publication in an appropriate journal. Students should work with their supervising faculty member(s) to find suitable venues in which to present or publish the final research project.
