UVM Undergraduate Research
UVM’s science faculty are both professors AND professional researchers – this benefits you! Any UVM student can pursue research credit in any affiliated College or Program within UVM. Biological Science majors can apply up to 6 credits of biologically-related research to their advanced life-science elective requirement. Levels of involvement include apprenticing, participating in the faculty member's (or their graduate student's) research, or developing a research project of your own.

UVM's Office of Fellowships, Opportunities, and Undergraduate Research advises students in finding faculty to work with, as well as how to contact these faculty members. They also have various funding opportunities for research expenses, summer support, and travel grants for research conferences.
