Annual Texas Higher Education Distinguished Service Award
Undergraduate Research Day at the Capitol
In 2019, 69 research projects were displayed at the Texas Capitol reflecting the work of numerous undergraduate students representing 59 college, university and health science center undergraduate programs across Texas (both public and private/independent institutions).
The event is conducted with the support of the Texas Senate Higher Education Committee and the Texas House Higher Education Committee.
Student participants, campus liaisons and faculty advisors traditionally have the opportunity to tour the Capitol, attend committee hearings and attend the daily meeting of the Senate and House of Representatives. Student participants are encouraged to work with their institution to schedule meetings with their respective legislators.
Additionally, representatives of the Texas Association of Graduate Admissions Professionals are available to encourage these outstanding students to enroll in a Texas Graduate School.
Each biennium we take this opportunity to showcase undergraduate research at the Texas Capitol. The first event was conducted during the 82nd Texas Legislative Session (2011).
