Undergraduate Research

Undergraduate research is mentored, self-directed work that enables you to explore an area of interest in your discipline and communicate your findings with others. Your research will involve inquiry, design, investigation, research, data analysis, writing, and presenting your results. MOLSAMP scholars will have an opportunity to present their research at both local and national conferences and receive a stipend for their research presentations or participation.

Requirements for participating in Undergraduate Research:
  • Students must have at least 60 credit hours and majoring in a STEM field
  • Students must have a 3.0 GPA or higher
  • Students must receive a recommendation from a faculty or staff member in their respective discipline
Those who present orals or posters in the research component of the MOLSAMP program MUST submit a research proposal. You will have support when completing the proposal because our goal is to help you through the process. Applications for undergraduate research will be on a rolling basis and remain open until all slots are filled.
