Undergraduate Research

Research Programs

There are many different kinds of opportunities for research at SMU.  These enable students to engage in research in many different contexts.  A student wishing to work on research might apply for an Undergraduate Research Assistantship or an Engaged Learning project.  Honors students could apply for a Richter Scholar award.  Within Dedman College, the Hamilton Undergraduate Research Scholars program fosters strong faculty-student collaboration. Interdisciplinary teams might put together a Big iDeas proposal.  These programs each have different emphases and students are encouraged to look for the best match to their research interests.
