The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) is a resource for all undergraduates in all majors on all UConn campuses seeking to enrich their undergraduate experiences through participation in research, scholarship, and creative activity.

OUR helps students find and develop opportunities to engage in independent or collaborative research with faculty members and other mentors working across the University's academic disciplines. Online resources are available in the Students section to help students get started, make connections, prepare strong applications, and maximize their experience. We also encourage interested students to meet with an OUR advisor for help crafting an individualized strategy for getting involved or for any other advising needs related to participation in research, scholarship, and creative activity.

OUR provides funding opportunities for student research and scholarship through a range of programs - learn more in the Funding & Programs section of the website.

Events, including workshops and information sessions and STEM research seminars, are a key part of OUR's effort to engage the University community in conversation about undergraduate research. Frontiers in Undergraduate Research poster exhibitions, held each fall and spring, showcase students’ learning and discovery through research and creative inquiry.
