Undergraduate Studies | Research

Whatever your major, American University will help you step outside the classroom to offer your gifts to a broader world. Start by talking to professors who share your interests. They will help steer you toward a great project and toward funding for it. The following list of undergraduate academic competitions, research and funding opportunities is by no means exhaustive! Honors students might be able to receive funding for capstone research though the Honors Program. For all students, your program or school is another great resource. Talk to your department chair or associate dean to learn more about the many opportunities available.
