UIC Office of Undergraduate Research

UIC supports undergraduate research, scholarship and creative activities through a number of programs, including the Undergraduate Research Experience and the Chancellor’s Undergraduate Research Award. These two initiatives provide students with an opportunity to conduct research under the guidance of a faculty mentor. The Office of Undergraduate Research also helps students and faculty from all disciplines identify additional programs and funding sources for pursuing their intellectual and creative interests, locally, nationally and internationally.

See a list of upcoming opportunities and deadlines between now and January 2018. Because each of these opportunities has its own requirements and expectations, the OUR strongly recommends that you to work with your instructors, academic advisers, support center mentors, the director of undergraduate studies in your major, the UIC Writing Center and/or the OUR (which you can reach at our@uic.edu) for guidance and feedback before submitting any application.
