The SVSU Undergraduate Research Program (UGRP) supports the university’s value in academic exploration and achievement by providing opportunities for our undergraduate students to participate in hands on research experiences in a variety of unique and meaningful ways. The program funds four distinct research grants including: UGRP faculty-led grant, UGRP student-led grant, UGRP student-travel grant, and UGRP mini student-led grant. Funding for the UGRP grants creates an environment for students to succeed by providing students the ability to: work closely with faculty mentors, earn an hourly wage to conduct research, receive financial support for travel to present research, and share findings in a university-wide SVSU Student Showcase. Students involved in the UGRP also participate in professional development workshops to enhance their research/presentation skills, gain knowledge of effective research practices, and network with fellow undergraduate researchers.
The UGRP integrates the University's teaching and research missions through the creation
and facilitation of faculty/student research partnerships. Select from the appropriate picture
