Center for Women & Work - Emerging Scholars Program
Thank you for your interest in the Emerging Scholars Program! This program provides students with a unique year-long opportunity to apply the theoretical knowledge gained from courses at UMass Lowell to a faculty member's on-going research. Students who participate gain valuable research experience and build on their classroom learning.
The Center for Women and Work is proud to introduce this year’s Emerging Scholar students! The students and faculty have just begun their research partnership, and we are very excited to sponsor such innovative projects within an array of disciplines. The 2013-2014 partnership projects include:
