Undergraduate research is a priority at Dominican. The Office of Undergraduate Research, Scholarship and Creative Investigations (URSCI) promotes student-faculty collaborative research and scholarship.

Funds are available on a competitive basis to:

  • Provide a summer stipend to students performing their own independent research,
  • Cover research-related travel or supplies, or
  • Pay a stipend to students who assist faculty with the faculty member’s research.

Undergraduates in all disciplines are eligible for all three types of awards.

The URSCI Expo is one of the year’s highlights. This daylong event is held each April to showcase independent student research in all disciplines.
