The purpose of the Honors Undergraduate Research Scholars (HURS) Program is to foster and support high-performing undergraduate students who demonstrate an aptitude for research.
Space is limited to 350 students of various majors and research interests
Collaborating with a faculty mentor, students accepted into the HURS program will be actively engaged in independent research, experience the investigative process, and expand core knowledge in a manner that will advance their academic careers, as well as their prospective career opportunities.
