Undergraduate Students

All Mizzou students can participate in research with a faculty mentor to begin building their research careers. The Office of Undergraduate Research can help you find and apply for undergraduate research opportunities. Contact us at 573-882-5979 or send us an email to make an appointment.

Students with advanced research interests and established faculty mentors can begin creating a body of work to support applications for presentations, summer programs and prestigious awards and fellowships. Students interested in a research career should be working closely with a faculty mentor.

It's never too early to start thinking about graduate school.

Graduate Students

Graduate students with a growing body of work should begin thinking about doctoral and postdoctoral work. All graduate students should build applications for prestigious and highly prestigious awards and fellowships to find funding for their education and advance their academic progress. Contact the graduate student adviser in your department or program or connect with an adviser in the graduate school to get started.
