Undergraduate Research

At Willamette, undergraduate research means much more than writing an assigned paper for class.

Our students engage in meaningful, hands-on research that often leads to published results in journals, national fellowships or public presentations — opportunities many other students don’t have until graduate school.

We offer more than 75 competitive undergraduate research grants annually in all subject areas, from the arts to the natural sciences to the humanities. In addition, our professors often invite students to collaborate on scholarly projects — thus helping them develop valuable critical thinking, writing and analytical skills.
