Jeremy Menchik, Assistant Professor of International Relations at the Fredrick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University, recently received an Outstanding  Undergraduate Reseaerch Mentor Award from the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) at Boston University for his mentorship during summer 2016.

Menchik and other award winners were featured in BU Today on October 21, 2016.

UROP facilitates undergraduate participation in faculty-mentored research projects. Funding opportunities exist and the program is flexible, allowing research study in any academic area University-wide.

The annual UROP symposium is being held on October 21, 2016 at the George Sherman Union, but the Outstanding Undergraduate Researchers and Outstanding Undergraduate Research Mentors were announced earlier this week.

Every Boston University undergraduate student is eligible to participate in UROP. Student-faculty partnerships span all academic areas—from biological and engineering sciences, economics and sociology, to history and religion, business and the arts. UROP’s goal is to provide financial support to every student who qualifies for the program.

Jeremy Menchik’s research interests include comparative politics, religion and politics, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East. At Boston University he is a member of the graduate faculty of political science and coordinates the MA program in IR and Religion.
