Undergraduate Research and Creative Scholarship

This website provides a resource for all undergraduate students and their faculty mentors at The University of Montana. It offers a gateway to the many opportunities available for UM students to participate in research. Within these pages you will find information on undergraduate research scholarships, opportunities to engage in research, and departments offering research courses.

This website also contains information on the annual University of Montana Conference on Undergraduate Research (UMCUR), which is now in its second decade. Every year, over 100 UM students present their research and creative scholarship at this conference, which is free and open to the public. The call for papers and online submission forms can be found by clicking here.

Also contained in this website are links to information on how to conduct research in various disciplines, along with information on best practices for presenting your research. One superb feature is a PowerPoint template for making professional posters.

We wish you the best of success with your undergraduate research endeavors!
