Research and scholarship opportunities

The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) is designed to give undergraduate students and faculty members the opportunity to work together on research, scholarly, or creative activities. UROP offers financial awards (up to $1400) twice yearly to full time undergraduates for research, scholarly, or creative projects undertaken in partnership with a faculty member. It encourages students to conduct research and pursue academic interests outside of their regular courses by employing them to work on special research projects. UROP applications are judged on both the quality of the proposed project and the educational benefit to the student; awards are not based on financial need.

The college maintains a listing of scholarships and awards for students.

Study Abroad

The Learning Abroad Center has hundreds of programs across the globe that can enhance your undergraduate experience. FSoS undergraduates are encouraged to incorporate study abroad into their academic careers; you can still graduate in four years as long as you plan ahead! The Learning Abroad center has a website specifically for Family Social Science undergraduates to help you plan your experience abroad.
