LAS Undergraduate Research

In the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS), we believe your curiosity can change the world.

That’s why we fund researchers from the beginning—at the undergraduate level. Working alongside our world-renowned faculty members, our undergraduate students help push the boundaries of science and innovation.

LAS offers competitively selected research awards to students who have a primary major in the college. Between 2018 and 2020, the college awarded about $260,000 in LAS Dean’s High Impact Awards for Undergraduate Research.

Students who embark on research adventures often journey further than they could have ever imagined. All the way to Costa Rica to study tropical cyclones, to the New York Library to unearth archives of women’s suffrage leaders, and to the highest levels of academic excellence. And, LAS students regularly win the Goldwater Scholarship, the nation’s premier undergraduate scholarship in mathematics, natural sciences and engineering. Check out some of our recent honorees.
