What are the benefits of research for my college student?

Engaging in  research prepares students to excel in the job market and graduate school by improving their critical thinking skills, persuasive writing ability, and creativity. Undergraduate research is particularly critical to the persistence of underrepresented students in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields. Learn more about how individual students have benefitted from research experiences through WMSURE.

WMSURE introduces students to multiple research opportunities. A culminating research experience for many WMSURE scholars is the Honors Project, or thesis. Learn more about the process of conducting an Honors Project and the difference between Honors Projects and honors in GPA.

What research scholarships are available?

WMSURE has been awarded a grant that will allow us to award stipends to student-faculty research teams. Students may also receive free housing and funding for summer research or for an Honors Project
