The Undergraduate Research Office has three competitive research awards with Fall 2018 application deadlines:

  • Pack Research Experience Program (PREP) for freshmen and sophomores due Oct. 22
  • Community -based for research that helps an organization in our community, due Oct. 29
  • Nevada Undergraduate Research for students to fund their own proposed research, due Nov. 12

Our office distributes ~$300,000 in undergraduate research awards each year, and our greatest challenge is in reaching students to increase the number of applicants. All of our applicants must have a faculty mentor, so it is important for faculty to be aware of these opportunities and the possibility of mentoring a student.
