On Friday, April 21, 14 freshmen from the Georgia Tech Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts presented their research at the College’s inaugural Freshman Research Exhibition. The students are involved in the Dean’s Research Internship Program.
Over the course of the academic year, the students worked as interns in the different schools that constitute the Ivan Allen College. Research topics included higher education, the environment, media, and food consumption.
The Dean’s Research Internship Program is a new program offering incoming freshmen an opportunity to work with a faculty mentor and receive a $2,500 grant during the academic year. By participating in the program, students have the opportunity to conduct research on a topic of their interest, develop analytical skills, and present their research in an appealing manner.
