Other mentors may be eligible with prior approval (see below). Students planning to work with mentors who will require prior approval should contact the Hamel Center director (paul.tsang@unh.edu) before submitting an application.

Mentors requiring prior approval of the Hamel Center director and the mentor’s department chair, extension director, or program leader (as appropriate):

Mentors requiring prior approval of the Hamel Center director and the student’s UNH faculty mentor:

Note:  Eligibility for all mentors also assumes the mentor’s availability to work with the student researcher throughout the entire undergraduate research process – i.e. availability not only during the actual research period, but also before the research begins (to assist with project design and proposal writing) and after the research has been completed (to assist with analysis of final results and presentation of research).
