In November, Team Rumination Nation applied for funding for the project entitled "Emotion and Thought Responses to Data Engagement and Design Features in Diet and Fitness Apps" through the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) at the University of California, Irvine. It was a competitive year; UROP received a record number of 628 applications. The Faculty Advisory Board saw merit in our work and awarded us $500! The team just finished a round of practice data collection sessions, and we're eager to recruit and collect data soon. They will present their research findings at the UCI Undergraduate Research Symposium in May 2019.
Jenni was awarded the Office of Engaged Learning Travel Scholarship. She also found out she has been accepted into the Research Scholar Apprentice Program. This program will allow her to work closely with a PhD student on their dissertation project.
Naika received generous funding from the College of Westchester, and Linh was awarded the Ruth Hagenstein Scholarship through the Sociology Department from the University of Washington. Chris was also awarded a Student Travel Award from the University of Pittsburgh.
Hope to see you on April 1 when they present their paper!
We want to extend a huge congratulations to Linh Ly, Julissa Murrieta, and Jenni Thang! They all were accepted to the first ever Undergraduate Symposium to be held at iConference 2019.
