Student Opportunities in Academic Research

Student Opportunities in Academic Research (SOAR) encompasses the following:

  • Faculty Student Research Program (FSRP)
  • President's Fellowship for Summer Research (PFSR)
  • Student Travel Funding
  • Celebration of Student Scholars (Spring event)
  • Undergraduate Research Fair (Fall event)


Student Research Opportunities

Student research activities occur during the academic year and during the summer. Individual faculty and students can apply for internal summer support through the President's Fellowship for Summer Research. We also encourage students to investigate external funding sources for summer research support and to utilize travel funds for conferences.
