UMFK students can earn the Undergraduate Research Scholar through activities on our campus.
This micro-credential recognizes and validates the learner’s successful completion of the University of Maine System (UMS) Undergraduate Research Scholar pathway (Levels 1, 2, and 3). The micro-credential validates learners successfully completed a mentored research experience and received a positive appraisal of their work and skill development. The micro-credential also validates the development of competencies in the research process, the application of safety and ethical standards relevant to the work, networking, and presentation skills.
Students may work on and submit the micro-credential at any time during the year. Verification of the activities occurs on December 1 and May 1 of each year.
