Undergraduate Research Opportunities

Undergraduate Research Opportunities

KNSM offers cutting-edge research opportunities for undergraduate students.

Our students have the option to participate in research with state-of-the-art centers and laboratories. Research experiences provide undergraduates with a well-rounded education and an upper hand over others if they decide to continue their education into graduate school.

Undergraduate Research Grant

The objective of this research grant is to facilitate undergraduate research across the four departments in the School of Education & Human Development. Expected learning outcomes include increased proficiency in the research process (e.g., developing research questions, engagement in research projects) and in the dissemination of research findings. Students will work with a faculty mentor on a new or existing project, thereby gaining valuable research experience and understanding and present their work at a local, state, or national setting (e.g., Student Research Week, state or national conferences, or other publications).
