We are currently accepting applications for the following program(s)
  • UG Research Grants (spring/summer funding cycle) - Application Deadline October 15, 2020

The Office of Undergraduate Research and Inquiry (OURI) serves as a centralized support office for students and faculty who are engaged in undergraduate research and inquiry.  We offer university wide programs such as undergraduate research grants, the annual undergraduate research symposium, and the undergraduate research journal. We also support departments and all colleges in their undergraduate research and inquiry initiatives. 

                         Why get involved in research and creative activities?

Few activities are as rewarding intellectually as research. In addition to the acquisition of invaluable research skills, students learn:
  • how knowledge is created and how that knowledge can be overturned with new evidence or new perspectives
  • to work independently and overcome obstacles
  • the importance of ethics and personal conduct in the research process.
Undergraduate research can take place in every discipline. It is especially common in the life sciences and physical sciences, where an estimated 40 percent of students nationwide engage in research under faculty mentorship; it is also found in the humanities, social sciences, and creative and performing arts.
