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.
