Find A Research Position
To find a research position:
- The Office of Undergraduate Education compiles a research opportunites website that contains links to research opportunities in various departments throughout Penn State’s campuses. Research opportunities are also searchable by the name of the project’s lead faculty member.
- Contact faculty members directly who you are interested in working with. Not all faculty post research opportunities, and they may have positions available.
Show Off Your Work
Research accomplishments need to be seen and shared. The annual Undergraduate Exhibition, held each spring, showcases scientific research and creative endeavors conducted by undergraduate students from across the University’s colleges and campuses. The event includes a research poster display and performance presentations. Monetary prizes are awarded to entries judged to demonstrate notable work.
Fund Your Research
Schreyer Honors College, Penn State and external sources all provide funding to undergraduate students for research opportunities. Find out more about what funding opportunities are available to you.
