Summer Call for Proposals for Undergraduate Research, Creative Activity

Auburn University at Montgomery’s Undergraduate Research Committee is accepting summer proposals for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity grants.

In March, the Office of the Provost allocated $50,000 for undergraduate research or creative activity at AUM. Grant funding is awarded to faculty members whose research involves undergraduate students.

Nine proposals have been funded so far. Congratulations to the most recent awardees:

  • Lee Farrow, “Emmeline Pankhurst in Russia and the International Intersections of Feminism and Communism, 1917-1933”
  • Seth Reno, “Creative-Research Trip to the Montgomery Zoo”
  • Randy Russell, “A Program of Solar Radiation and Cloud Measurements”

The Undergraduate Research Committee will continue to review and fund research projects on a rolling basis throughout the summer until the funds are disbursed. The committee anticipates another call in September for funding in the next fiscal year.

AUM’s Experiential Education and Engagement Center and the University Honors Program share the mission of encouraging undergraduate research and creativity and administering funding for undergraduate research and creativity. To apply, please email Lynn Stallings at lstallin@aum.edu for the guidelines.

Three Warhawks earn academic All-District honors

Three AUM student-athletes earned Academic All-District honors from the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).

Molly Cobb and Jaycie Walker earned recognition as members of the Academic All-District softball team, while Casey Henderson earned a spot on the Academic All-District baseball team for District 5 in NCAA Division II.

The all-district teams recognize the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances on the field and in the classroom. The CoSIDA Academic All-America program separately recognizes softball and baseball honorees in four divisions — NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III and NAIA.

Cobb led the Warhawks in 2021 with a .426 batting average and 45 RBIs and finished second on the team with 10 home runs.  Cobb, an elementary education major, has posted a perfect 4.0 grade point average during her time at AUM. She received 2021 Gulf South Conference Spring All-Academic Team and Spring Academic Honor Roll recognition as well.

Walker finished up her AUM career as the softball program’s career leader in doubles (55) and ranked in the top three in hits (201), home runs (32) and RBIs (133). Walker, who completed her bachelor’s degree in kinesiology in Spring 2021 with a 3.98 GPA, also was named to the 2020 CoSIDA Academic All-America Second Team and the GSC Spring All-Academic Team and Spring Academic Honor roll in 2021.

Henderson led the baseball team and ranked among the top 10 in the Gulf South Conference with a .381 batting average, 64 base hits and 40 RBIs. He carried a 4.0 GPA while earning his master’s degree in kinesiology.
