Undergraduate Research Scholars


Be curious; Change Your World

Go. Do. Learn.

  • Go – Uncover something long ago, in a place where science and humanities intersect.
  • Do – work in a nano-technology lab designing novel drug devices to treat a specific cancer.
  • Learn – be on the edge of new knowledge in a library with highly valued manuscripts.




Students engage in Undergraduate Research to learn, and faculty know this. Being curious, with a passion to learn, is the most important quality for an undergraduate researcher; the rest can be taught. Some faculty mentors want their undergraduate researchers to have some basic knowledge or skills, it depends on the situation.
