Welcome to the Office of Undergraduate Research! Our goal is twofold: (1) to promote undergraduate research and creative activities on campus as highlighted by the annual Scholars Symposium and Creative Achievement Day and (2) to serve The Honors College, particularly through the guidance of the Honors Project. Proposals must include hands-on research/scholarship for two full semesters by one or more undergraduate students currently enrolled full-time at UT Tyler. The budget must only include expenses for the student researcher(s) such as wages, fringe benefits, travel, and supplies.
