Freshman Research Scholars program introduces CASNR students to research basics

Eleven incoming Oklahoma State University freshmen from the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources will each receive a $1,000 scholarship to pursue an early, hands-on introduction to university-level research in the Freshman Research Scholars (FRS) program during the upcoming academic year.

Eleven incoming Oklahoma State University freshmen from the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources will each receive a $1,000 scholarship to pursue an early, hands-on introduction to university-level research in the Freshman Research Scholars (FRS) program during the upcoming academic year. In total, 60 students were selected for the award representing 33 majors from all six undergraduate colleges.

OSU freshmen will expand their education beyond the classroom by engaging in cutting-edge research under the guidance of some of the most innovative faculty on campus.  FRS students learn basic research ethics and methodology while working closely with their mentors and graduate assistants to design and conduct projects of their choosing.

With pioneering undergraduate research programs, such as the Wentz and Niblack research programs, OSU offers many opportunities for students of all majors and classifications to continue their research beyond the first year.
