UH Research Opportunities
Provost's Undergraduate Research Scholarship (PURS)
The Provost's Undergraduate Research Scholarship Program provides talented UH juniors and seniors with the opportunity to participate in a research project under the direction of a UH faculty mentor. Scholarship recipients receive a $1,000 scholarship to conduct research for one semester.
Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF-UH)
The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship provides funding for rising UH sophomores, juniors, and seniors to participate in a focused 10-week research experience under the direction of UH faculty.
Specific Research Opportunities
Individual UH faculty are often looking for talented undergraduate students to participate in their ongoing research. The nature of these opportunities is typically defined by the individual faculty. More details regarding these opportunities may be obtained by directly contacting the faculty member.
Undergraduate Research Day
Sponsored by the Office of Undergraduate Research and The Honors College, Undergraduate Research Day is an exciting event in which the research endeavors of the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) participants, and many other undergraduates who have conducted substantive research projects within the year, are showcased through poster, paper, and creative presentations. Undergraduate Research Day 2013 will take place on Thursday, October 10th at 4 p.m. in the Rockwell Pavilion.
Spring Academic Showcase
The Spring Academic Showcase offers spring researchers an opportunity to share their work, and complements the university-wide Undergraduate Research Day held in October of each year. Undergraduates from any major at the University are invited to submit abstracts for presenting a poster, orally presenting a paper, or presenting a project based on original research, study abroad, leadership activity, or creative work that they have conducted within the last year. The Spring Academic Showcase 2013: Celebrating Undergraduate Research and Achievement will take place on Thursday, April 11, 2013 at the Rockwell Pavilion and the Honors College, 2nd floor of the M.D. Anderson Library.
