Undergraduate Research/Write-In

The goal of the Undergraduate Research/Write-In is to provide students a supportive space to work on their research and writing projects. Undergraduates can take this afternoon to get a jump-start on their research and writing efforts, whether than means starting a new project or getting organized on a project already underway. Students can spend the afternoon working individually on their projects or can take part in individual consultations and/or workshops. Participants have the option of staying for the entire afternoon or dropping in for a specific workshop or consultation. Pre-registration is encouraged to ensure a spot at the event, but drop-ins are also welcome.

Without a Wounded Warrior scholarship, Timothy Hornik probably wouldn’t be at KU pursuing a doctoral degree in therapeutic sciences. And he definitely wouldn’t have led the Pledge of Allegiance during President Barak Obama’s visit to the university in January — a moment he will never forget. Hornik, a retired Army officer, lost his sight while serving as an air defense artillery platoon leader in Iraq. The Wounded Warrior Educational Initiative, launched at KU in 2008, provides financial support and specialized training to help injured veterans and their family members pursue advanced degrees. With his education, Hornik plans to counsel soldiers through trauma. “All of the opportunities and services I’ve received originated from the efforts of someone else paying it forward or back,” he says. “I simply hope to continue this cycle and change the lives of others.” Learn more about the Wounded Warrior Scholarship: http://bit.ly/1xhbaxy
