Drop Shadow

For Students

There are many ways that USD undergraduates can get involved in research and creative activities. The Office of Undergraduate Research offers summer research grants to students who want to conduct a 10-week project under the supervision of a USD faculty mentor. Please see the SURE page for more information about when and how to apply.

There are also many opportunities to engage in a summer research project at an off-campus site. Please check the Off-Campus Opportunities page for a list of universities, government labs, and other facilities that provide research internships and experiences for undergraduate students.

If you have conducted a research or scholarly project while at USD, why not present your work at a conference? Check out the list of Undergraduate Conferences, and don't forget to apply for a travel grant to help pay the costs of attending!
