Undergraduate Research Resources

The University of Central Florida offers numerous opportunities for undergraduates to pursue research in various disciplines under the direction of a faculty member. Iintensive research in a student discipline enhances the academic experience and challenges students to strengthen their critical, analytical, and writing skills.

UCF Library
The UCF Library offers research consultations, during which a librarian will offer in-depth research assistance.

University Writing Center
The University Writing Center offers one-on-one appointments to brainstorm ideas and strengthen your writing.

Office of Undergraduate Research
The Office of Undergraduate Research enriches the research climate at the University of Central Florida. We encourage you to explore the support that OUR provides to help you get involved in research: the programs to fund your research, the workshops to improve your ability to communicate your research, and the ways to present your research to the academic community on and off campus.

Research and Mentoring Program (RAMP)
RAMP offers paid research experiences to students in their junior and senior years with the potential to continue in graduate school. Faculty members mentor students engaging in research throughout the academic year.

McNair Scholars Program
McNair prepares undergraduate students for doctoral studies through involvement in research and other scholarly activities. Participants are either first-generation college students and low-income as defined by federal guidelines or members of a group that is traditionally underrepresented in graduate school.

Showcase of Undergraduate Research Excellence (SURE)
SURE invites undergraduates who are engaged in research or creative activities to showcase their research in a poster forum. The showcase occurs each spring semester during UCF research week.
