Undergraduate research opportunities immerse students in their majors, allowing them to work outside the classroom and to build meaningful relationships with faculty members whose encouragement and mentoring will support the student’s academic career. In fact, as FHSU alumni go on to graduate schools, many report that their undergraduate research propelled them ahead of peers because they were more prepared thanks to the hand-on opportunities to work in real research settings.
Professional pursuits are also enhanced by the skills learned through the Undergraduate Research Program, which is available to all FHSU students and required for all Kansas Academy of Math and Science (KAMS) scholars. Developing the next generation of scientists puts FHSU alumni at the forefront of driving innovation.Research Scholarship Support $500 or more A gift of any size provides research opportunities to undergraduate and KAMS scholars.
