Undergraduate Research

Conduct experiments with radiation-detecting elements in electrical engineering or discover oceanic chemical compositions in marine science. Beginning as early as your freshman year, you start to apply what you learn in the classroom to hands-on research. 


This four-week course teaches you everything you need to know about getting a research project started, funded and accepted. 

Magellan Scholars

You can receive up to $3,000 to help fund a project by submitting a research, scholarship or creative proposal developed in collaboration with a faculty mentor. These competitive awards are just one of more than a dozen sources of funding available for undergraduate researchers.

Discovery Day

From poetry and musical performances to science and public health, our undergraduate researchers bring out their best work for Discovery Day. 


You can find the help you need for your projects with our Research Mentoring Institute. You can find a mentor with our virtual database of talented faculty across campus who are willing to offer their advice and guidance.
