Overview

Undergraduate research is an integral part of the student experience at Lake Superior State University. In fact, the University mission and vision statement emphasizes LSSU’s role in helping students develop their full potential, as well as contributing to the growth, dissemination and application of knowledge.

The Undergraduate Research Committe (URC) is charged with promoting and recognizing the student research efforts that occur across campus, as well as encouraging new efforts. The committee consists of faculty members from various academic disciplines.

One of the main roles of the URC is to oversee the Undergraduate Research Fund, a program sponsored by the LSSU Foundation that awards grants of up to $500 to students to support project or research-based equipment, supplies, and travel.

The student grants are awarded once each semester on a competitive basis. To apply for a research grant, students must fill out the online application form.
