ORCA hosts Writing Workshop Sept. 30

The Brigham Young University Office of Research and Creative Activities will host a Writing Workshop to help students prepare their ORCA applications Wednesday, Sept. 30, at 10 a.m. in the Wilkinson Student Center Varsity Theater.

ORCA offers $1,500 grants to help undergraduate students to team up with a faculty mentor. Students may either design their own project or work on a professor’s ongoing research.

The ORCA applications are due Friday, Oct. 30, at midnight. For more information, visit orca.byu.edu.

ORCA writing workshops are customized for the ORCA student award program. Students are taken through the application process and given writing tips for a successful proposal. The workshops are presented by faculty from different colleges.
