Undergraduate Research

The School of Sciences & Mathematics has a strong commitment to experiential learning and encourages all majors to pursue a research project during their time at the College. Opportunities for funding are available through both the School and the Office of Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities (urca.cofc.edu.) Students can receive assistance with placement by attending our Research Mixer, a casual meet & greet meant to pair faculty mentors with undergraduate research students, held annually in November. Scholars are invited to participate in the School's annual Undergraduate Research Poster Session in April of each year. Summer research activities are showcased at the Celebration of Scholars, hosted by URCA, in August.

Undergraduate Student Support for Travel to Professional Meetings

Travel awards, usually capped at $750, are available to support students presenting research at regional and national conferences/meetings hosted by professional societies. This is an open ended process and students may submit an application at any time, but no less than 2 weeks prior to departure.

We recommend to students whose travel expenses may exceed the limit that they seek matching support from their major department and/or URCA if applicable.
