The McNeil Center for Early American Studies (MCEAS)Undergraduate Research Workshop extends the benefits of the MCEAS to undergraduate students enrolled at consortium institutions by holding a workshop for advanced (junior or senior) undergraduates writing an honors thesis or research paper in early American studies. Each Spring semester, a select group of students are accepted to become a part of the McNeil Center’s intellectual community. Participating in the URW includes: touring Philadelphia’s archives, attending the prestigious Friday Seminars, presenting one’s research at a conference at the University of Pennsylvania, and support along the way by peers, graduate student mentors, and faculty from the participants’ colleges. “ Application information for the annual URW is available beginning in November of that academic year, with an application deadline of December. If you have any questions, please contact Iona’s faculty advisor and McNeil Center research associate Dr. Slonimsky at firstname.lastname@example.org.
