The Schoofs Prize provides a platform whereby undergraduate students are encouraged to explore/conduct self-directed research, outside the classroom environment. Students are encouraged to exploit, on their own and with complete freedom, the array of talent and resources that are so readily available to them. The intent is to awaken students to the potential embedded in their own talent, and thereby encourage creativity and entrepreneurship.
