George H. Cook Scholars Program

The George H. Cook Scholars Program is an independent research and senior honors thesis program for SEBS undergraduates. Working under the mentorship of an approved advisor, students in the program conduct original basic and applied research in the natural and health sciences, economics, and public policy, design or evaluate environmental infrastructure, or produce original works in other areas of scholarship. Projects are planned and initiated by at least the end of the second semester of the junior year, and students present their results in a written thesis and orally at a research symposium in the second semester of the senior year. Project advisors are typically members of the Rutgers faculty, but may also include academics and appropriate professionals from other institutions.

Each student who successfully completes the program is designated at commencement as a George H. Cook Scholar.
