In this podcast, we spotlight Saint Anselm’s Undergraduate Research Scholar Program (URSP) and feature interviews with the program’s director, Prof. Lori LaPlante, and three students that are participating in this year’s program.

Joane Schepis ’07 is studying children and how they adjust physiologically to certain family situations. Andrea Desilets ’07 is examining the effects of the U.S. and European cotton subsidies in Mali, Africa. And Bonnie Collier ‘07 is exploring gender stratification and citizenship.

The URSP seeks to promote scholarly undergraduate research, support interinstitutional mentoring, and increase the number of successful admissions to graduate school for Saint Anselm students. The URSP supports three teams (junior undergraduate, Saint Anselm faculty mentor, and external graduate-level mentor).

Each URSP student is paid as a research assistant for the work they complete with their graduate-level faculty mentor during the summer before their senior year. In the spring of their senior year, each student coordinates and speaks at their own research symposium about their project.
