In the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR), undergraduate research allows you to become more actively engaged in your education through intellectual inquiry and practical learning. You will increase your understanding of your field, gain real-world experience and prepare for your future career by working closely with a faculty mentor and graduate students.
Undergraduate research offers you an opportunity to broaden your employment opportunities, strengthen your application to graduate school or simply get a clearer view of your career interests and options. Investigation of important issues that interest you will strengthen your research, analytical, writing and speaking skills. It could also result in a journal article or presentation at a professional meeting.
Participants may be eligible for research grants of up to $2,000 per semester. The majority of the grant (80 percent) is awarded as a scholarship, hourly wage, conference travel or stipend. If you usually work during the semester, these funds could permit you to devote quality time to conducting research without having to worry about working another job. You may receive funding from this source for two semesters total.
