Undergraduate Research

Opportunities for undergraduate research at UVM are extensive and limited only by your imagination. Research can be conducted independently, on a team, directed by a faculty member, within the university, or in an outside facility. UVM’s FOUR (Fellowships, Opportunities, and Undergraduate Research) office is housed in the Honors College and enables students to get involved in research, discovery, innovation, creativity, or other scholarly work on the cutting edge of their field. 


From the Fulbright Scholarship to the Rhodes Scholarship, all students at the University of Vermont receive one-on-one mentoring and advising for nationally competitive scholarship and fellowship applications. Fellowships advising is housed in the FOUR Office in University Heights North.
