Undergrad Research

The purpose of the College of Agriculture Undergraduate Research program is to encourage research by students as a part of their education. Students partner with a faculty member to conduct research in their area of interest. To date, over 150 student projects have been funded for a total of over $200,000. 

Students receiving funding must submit a written report on their work. Many students present their research findings at local, regional, or national meetings and/or conferences, which is excellent experience to include on a résumé or graduate/professional school application.
