The work should be substantially that of the student, and be sufficiently complete, original, and innovative to warrant publication.
The research must have been completed while the student was an undergraduate at the UAH. Students may submit research within one year after graduating.

Faculty mentors may include tenure-earning and tenured faculty, lecturers, full-time research staff with Doctoral level credentials, and term faculty appointments. Professionals outside of UAH are also permissible with prior approval.
