Expert faculty can mentor you in hands-on research, scholarship, and creative activities, adding important new dimensions to your knowledge in your field. And, to your education at Washington State University.
Office of Undergraduate Research
WSU undergraduates from all majors, in all years in college, and on every campus can be researchers who work with faculty mentors and contribute something new to their field. It’s easy to get started and plenty of resources will help you enjoy the experience.
Research is the process of making new contributions to a branch of knowledge. It takes place in all disciplines, whether you are in the humanities, arts, and social sciences, or in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). And undergraduate students are an integral part of the research, scholarship, and creative activities that take place at WSU to bring knowledge to our world.
The Washington State University Office of Undergraduate Research announced that awards to support mentored research, scholarship, and creative activity have been given to 41 students in 31 majors across four campuses for the 2023-2024 academic year. More than $60,000 was presented from among eight types or combinations of awards, said Jeremy Lessmann, office director. Students from WSU Pullman, WSU Tri-Cities, WSU Vancouver, and WSU Everett are among the recipients.
Washington State University undergraduate students can apply online now through Jan. 20, 2023 for any of seven awards to support their mentored undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activities in academic year 2023-24. A variety of awards are available to all students. Three are presented by the Office of Undergraduate Research in the Division of Academic Engagement and Student Achievement (DAESA). Others are from the WSU LSAMP (Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation) program, the Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture, and the Team Mentoring Program (TMP). A grant for research into arts and humanities topics is available from the WSU Emeritus Society.
