UConn's undergraduate students are given the opportunity to engage in chemistry research during their academic career.

Through independent research courses and the URAP Program, students are able to conduct research in the laboratories of Chemistry faculty mentors. Also, awards are available to support summer research and innovative research projects. Students may also broaden their experiences through research at an REU institution or through research abroad.

The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) is also a resource for all undergraduates seeking to enrich their undergraduate experiences through participation in research, scholarship, and creative activity.
