WMSURE participants are welcome to stop by during Office Hours. We're happy to help you get started, and can help you find answers to your questions about research.
Also - keep an eye on our workshop schedule. We frequently discuss topics related to conducting research in an academic environment.
Benefits of Research
Engaging in research prepares students to excel in the job market and graduate school. Students who have conducted research have critical thinking skills, persuasive writing ability, and creativity. Employers and graduate schools look for and value these skills.
Undergraduate research is particularly critical to the persistence of underrepresented students in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields.
WMSURE introduces students to multiple research opportunities. A culminating research experience for many WMSURE scholars is the Honors Project, or thesis.
Funding for Undergraduate Research
One of the roles of WMSURE is to help guide WMSURE students to funding to support their research. These pages may help:
