Undergraduate Research

Make an impact by doing research with faculty mentors to create new, and add to existing, knowledge in your field!

The WSU Office of Undergraduate Research is ready to help you!

Students and faculty will find answers in this website to many questions about getting involved in undergraduate research at WSU.

Students can also get information during drop-in hours with peer mentors--students currently involved in undergraduate research. They are available to meet with you several hours each week. They can help answers questions like "How do I get started in research?," "Will I get paid to work on research?," "How do I find a faculty mentor who will oversee my work and train me?," and "What special research awards are available to me?"
