Twice a year, Clark University highlights the research and creative work of undergraduate students from across the disciplines, at Fall Fest in October and Academic Spree Day in April. These annual events highlight the multiple opportunities Clark students have to apply what they learn in the classroom to solving real-world problems.
This year, Fall Fest will feature the work of more than 100 undergraduate students on Friday, Oct. 26, from 1 to 4 p.m. in Goddard Library.
Students will present oral presentations throughout the afternoon in the Fuller and Prouty conference rooms on the library’s fourth floor. Summer research and LEEP Fellow poster presentations will be held on the first and second floors. (Download PDF of schedule.)
The event also highlights the funding students win from Clark and outside sources, allowing undergraduate scholars to remain on campus during the summer to work in faculty laboratories, or intern or pursue research and creative work in the Worcester and Boston areas, as well as overseas.
Sources of funding include LEEP (Liberal Education and Effective Practice) Fellowships, Steinbrecher Fellowships, Harrington Public Affairs Fellowships, Theodore Barth Foundation Internship Awards, HERO (Human-Environment Regional Observatory) Fellowships, the Summer Science Program, the Lois and Robert Green Urban Development and Social Change Summer Internship Program, Ina R. and Haskell R. Gordon Fund for Undergraduate Students of Holocaust Studies, Henry J. and Erna D. Leir scholarships, and other departmental funding.
Each year, several students also receive National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Fellowships, in partnership with Clark’s George Perkins Marsh Institute and Mosakowski Institute for Public Enterprise.
