Four School of Business undergraduates have been selected to participate in the Provost’s annual Honors Summer Research program. Students are selected based on their GPA and an interview with faculty.

“It’s a wonderful educational opportunity for students to be able to work one-on-one with a faculty mentor and learn how to do academic research,” said Elisah Lewis, director of Student Research and Support Services.

Each student will work six to eight weeks over the summer and at least 280 hours. Upon completion of the project and a research paper, each student will receive a $1,500 stipend and three honors credits.

“Professors donating their time through this endeavor to assist our undergraduates in learning about research shows the deep commitment they have to our students,” Lewis said.

John Coleman, a junior accounting major, will work with Sundaresh Ramnath, assistant professor of accounting; Christina Farmer, a junior international finance and marketing major, will work with Jospeh Johnson, assistant professor of marketing; Marco Jovovich, a junior accounting major, will work with Royce Burnett, assistant professor of accounting; and Carlos Antonorsi, a junior economics major, will be work with Oscar Mitnik, assistant professor of economics.

Last year, for the first time, two School of Business students were chosen to participate in the program. Cassandre Davilmar worked with Anita Cava, associate professor of business law, on research into the honest services fraud statute, and Hayley Donaldson worked with Royce Burnett to investigate the value relevance of the nation’s top 100 non-profit organizations.
