Undergraduate research program

Consortium of Undergraduate Research Experiences

In an effort to encourage research among the country's brightest undergraduate students, Kansas State University hosts summer programs that offer research experiences.

These programs provide an opportunity for students from diverse disciplines to work with a mentor on a research project or to join an existing research team. In addition to being an opportunity to work with multi-cultural students from different colleges and universities, participants learn about the Graduate School experience, and many decide it's a great next step for their education.

Most of the programs include seminars and activities that provide students with professional development opportunities beyond their research experience. Learn more about each of our summer research experiences.
