Undergraduate Scholars Program

Undergraduate Scholars Program

The Undergraduate Scholars Program (USP) encourages and facilitates undergraduate research in collaboration with faculty mentors  by awarding grants and/or academic credit. Research projects may include any scholarly or creative activity ranging from traditional scientific experimentation to the creation of new artistic works, and can stem from a faculty mentor's research or  a student's original idea.

A quick glance at the focus of some recent projects highlights the range of opportunities supported by USP: geology of underground coal beds, characteristics of biofilm, nursing stereotypes, bioprospecting in Yellowstone National Park, and an unusual exhibit of original photography. Projects are selected according to scholarly standards of  the relevant disciplines(s).
