All minors (under the age of 18) whether they are a student, employee, or volunteer must have a completed Minors in Research Project Registration BEFORE beginning any work or conducting any research in a University of Kentucky research lab, greenhouse, animal facility, or field work. The lab's principal investigator where the minor will be working is responsible for completing this process.
Note: no one under the age of 14 is permitted to work or conduct research in the above listed locations at the university unless it is a UK sponsored program designed for youth (training and safety policies must be documented with the university)
Please follow these steps to complete and submit your project registration information:
- Consult the instruction document for additional information, rules, and policies in regards to minors before beginning the approval process
- Complete the Project Registration form and submit the form here online (the form is found at this link as well)
This proposal must be sent at least 2 weeks prior to the minor beginning work.
