Off-Campus Opportunities

There are many off-campus research and scholarly opportunities but finding the right one will take time and commitment. Make sure to plan ahead so that you can explore and lay the groundwork for finding an opportunity that aligns with your interests and goals.

To help you get started on your search, the USD Office of Undergraduate Research has recently partnered with Student Opportunity Center (SOC) - the largest national database of student research, honors conferences, funding, scholarships, and other experiential opportunities.
