Research and Summer Scholars Opportunities
Participating in research as an undergraduate is an exciting opportunity! Conducting research opens up a new world of exploration.
Students may participate in research programs at any time if they have identified a faculty member who is willing to accept him/her into their laboratory. Please note that not all faculty members participate in undergraduate research programs. Research is a commitment, so be sure you have time in your schedule before you make that commitment. Browse department websites to help you identity a faculty research advisor.
You may conduct undergraduate research as a volunteer, for a salary, or for credit through ANFS 468 (please see forms page). Either way, please be sure to create a clear plan of action and identify your responsibilities and the expectations on the part of the faculty member and the student.
Students may participate in more formal research programs through the Science & Engineering Scholars Program (SESP). Students should identify a faculty mentor and sponsor willing to work with them before the applications are due, which is usually around March 1.
