Honors students are strongly encouraged to pursue undergraduate research opportunities.
The University Honors Program (UHP) works with interested honors students across all disciplines to identify and match students to appropriate research opportunities.
As early as their first year at the University of Idaho, many honors students become involved with undergraduate research opportunities in labs, fieldwork and other areas.
Students performing research at the University of Idaho work closely with faculty members and other researchers.
Honors students have the option to use undergraduate research experiences as part of an honors thesis.
For more information on individual research opportunities at the University of Idaho in your field, please contact your department or college.
Need help finding research opportunities? The UHP is happy to provide additional advising.
“Undergrad research has been the bridge between education and action for me. There is no substitute for students interested in just about any field.”

Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)
Funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), REUs provide summer research opportunities for undergraduate students at host institutions throughout the United States.
Students participating in these programs spend their summer on campus, working on a specific project in the research programs of the host institution.
During this time, students work closely with faculty and other researchers.
For their research work, REU students are granted stipends and, in many cases, additional support for housing and travel.
