The Undergraduate Research Program

The Undergraduate Research Program is a 1-2 year program that provides a thorough grounding in “real world” research methods. Juniors or seniors in the School of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences with minimum GPAs of 3.0 may apply.

As a participant in the Undergraduate Research Scholars Program, you will spend two years doing real world research in a topic that interests you. You will own this project from start to finish. In the process you will find yourself stretching and growing in ways you never dreamed possible, as you become part of a vibrant and inspiring community of scholars at A&T and beyond. 

How it works

Working closely with a faculty mentor, you will write a research proposal, create a work plan and budget, gather approvals from the university administration, buy materials, set up experiments or surveys and gather data. Then, you will write up and publish your findings and present them to colleagues at professional conferences. Scholars are paid for their time and supported in travel to conferences.

As a researcher, you can be the first person in the world to discover the answer to a question. And as a participant in the Undergraduate Research Scholars Program, you can become part of making a better future for us all. 
And that’s the best reason why you should talk to your advisor or a faculty mentor about becoming a Research Scholar. 
Please begin by browsing the list of faculty mentors and arrange a meeting with those whose research interests mesh with your own long-term goals and career aspirations.
