Undergraduate Research and Travel Grants

The College of Arts and Sciences recognizes the importance of undergraduate research in the educational experience and actively supports student participation in both academic year and summer programs.

The College provides many opportunities for undergraduate students to work one-on-one with faculty members in undergraduate research (including creative activities) and formally present their work to the campus community. Some students may receive research stipends, support for research materials, on-campus housing support, and/or travel conference support.

Here are a few research opportunities.
