Undergraduate Research Opportunities
HLKN offers cutting-edge research opportunities for not only graduate students; undergraduate students have the option of some centers and laboratories to participate. Research experiences provide undergraduates with a well-rounded education and an upper hand over others if they decide to continue their education towards graduate school.
Undergraduate Research Grant
The objective of this research grant is to facilitate undergraduate research across the four departments in the College 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. Thus, 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).
Undergraduates will be awarded a $500 stipend to assist with tuition, books and other supplies needed to carry out the research. Also, the faculty mentor will receive $500 in a research and development account to help cover the costs associated with the research project.
