The opportunities are endless (well not really, but there are a lot). 

Researching everything from ants to agroecology, ENVS faculty members engage daily in the pursuit of meaningful and impactful research, scholarship and creative work.

UVM's goal remains to translate what we learn or discover at the university into innovations that benefit all facets of society. Undergraduate students have the option of enrolling in independent research courses or working directly with a faculty member or graduate students on a research project.

Research Opportunities

Interested in research? Contact our faculty to ask about their scholarship and inquire about opportunities to get involved. Note: All research with people will require IRB human subjects research review and approval. Deadline for project submission is April 1st!

Need funding for summer research, scholarship or projects?

The Environmental Program is a leader at UVM in research. Here are three opportunities to apply for financial support.

Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Summer Awards

Explicitly recognizing this intersection between environmental and justice challenges facing the world today, the Environmental Program, in collaboration with the Mosaic Center, is launching its Justice, Equity, Inclusion and Diversity Summer Awards. We aim to offer three awards this summer carrying a $3500 stipend and $500 for expenses.  

Summer Undergraduate Research Awards

The Environmental Program at UVM is a university-wide interdisciplinary program encouraging high impact learning and active student engagement in building a sustainable future.

To meet that mission, the Program offers summer research awards of up to $3,000 (for salary and/or expenses) to UVM undergraduate students conducting environmentally related research.



How do I get involved with research?

Just ask! 38 percent of UVM undergraduates conduct research with a faculty mentor.
