The Nevada Undergraduate Research Award provides up to $1,500 to help facilitate undergraduate research, scholarship or creative activity. Facilitated by Undergraduate Research, these awards advance academic endeavors and enhance the learning experience for participating undergraduate students. No matter if you are an arts, humanities, social sciences or STEM major, you are strongly encouraged to speak with a faculty member of your choosing about a project, study, thesis or performance and develop a proposal for the Nevada Undergraduate Research Award for the 2017-2018 academic year. Applications can be found at and are due by midnight April 12, 2017.

While the STEM disciplines have represented the majority of Undergraduate Research funding, we are hoping for a large number of applicants from across ALL disciplines. In anticipation of this, the Nevada Undergraduate Research Award has been subdivided into four categories; Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences and STEM. Each category will be funded relative to the number of its applicants.

To witness the impressive undergraduate research being done across campus every day, stop by the 2017 Nevada Undergraduate Research Symposium the afternoon of April 20, 2017, on the fourth floor of the Joe Crowley Student Union. This free event features poster and oral presentations. If you are an undergraduate student with a performance, study, project, thesis, etc. that you want to share, or are perhaps you have a class obligation to present, please register for the symposium by April 7. Registration and event details are available at
