Undergraduate Research Opportunities

Scholarly Inquiry and Research at Emory (SIRE)

The SIRE program offers opportunities for undergraduates to partner with faculty members to engage in scholarly research. SIRE students earn course credit or work-study funds during the semester, receive a stipend during the summer, acquire international research experience, and/or are eligible for grants to support research and travel.

Clara Boothe Luce (CBL) Program

The CBL program seeks to help diversify the field of physical science by encouraging more women to pursue research careers. The award is comprised of semester and summer stipends, a research expense account, and networking and mentoring opportunities for female undergraduates majoring in Chemistry, Physics, Math, or Computer Science.

Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE)

The SURE program offers opportunities for undergraduate students to conduct supervised research with a faculty mentor while receiving a stipend. After a summer of conducting research, students will be better prepared for graduate school and a professional career in the sciences.

Departmental Opportunities

Research opportunities can emerge by directly contacting departments or individual faculty members. Look into research opportunities and honors programs in Anthropology, Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Studies, Mathematics & Computer Science, Neuroscience and Behavioral Biology, Physics, or Psychology departments. 

China Undergraduate Research Experience (CURE)

The CURE program is a year-long program for undergraduates interested in working on collaborative biomedical engineering research projects at Emory University/Georgia Institute of Technology and Peking University in China.
