Resources for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities Main Content
A number of resources exist to help faculty and students establish undergraduate research and/or creative activity projects, publicize research results, find discipline-specific research funding for undergraduates, and link undergraduate researchers with graduate programs.
The <University Honors Program> offers the option of a research project culminating in a thesis. The program's Office of Major Scholarship Advisement lists many local resources for prospective researchers and scholars. Another local resource is <SPEAR: Students Promoting Education and Research>. This SIU Carbondale student organization stimulates interest in undergraduate research and graduate studies and offers activities to help undergraduates prepare for graduate school.
