Honors Mentoring Program
The Office of Undergraduate Research provides students the opportunity to participate in research as early as their first semester on campus. Every semester, many Honors College students take advantage of the resources provided by this office to match with a professor doing research in their field of interest. Opportunities at West Virginia University include:
Research Apprenticeship Program (RAP), which allows freshmen, sophomores
and juniors with limited university research experience to use federal work-study
funds or gain course credit for undergraduate research apprenticeships with
WVU research faculty in both STEM and non-STEM fields; and
- Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE), an eight-week summer undergraduate research experience for students interested in careers in research or graduate school within their disciplines
Mountaineer Undergraduate Research Review (MURR)
Presenting Your Research
