Undergraduate Research

UConn’s Office of Undergraduate Research will guide you in individualized research, scholarship, and creative activity. Together, you’ll find and develop opportunities to engage in independent or collaborative research with faculty across UConn’s academic disciplines. UConn also provides funding for student research through a range of programs, including IDEA (Imagine/Develop/Engage/Apply) grants and SURF (Summer Undergraduate Research Fund) awards, for work ranging from the scientific to the artistic.

Present your findings at UConn’s Frontiers exhibition — where student researchers hold in-depth conversations with the University community.
