Brockport / IEL / Undergraduate Research

Undergraduate Research

Undergraduate research at Brockport gives students an opportunity to work closely with a faculty mentor on scholarly or creative projects directly related to a student’s major. These projects take on many different forms, and many lead to a professional product that enhances your resume. Projects range from part-time work during the regular academic year to full-time summer research internships.

Brockport Foundation Summer Undergraduate Research

Through the generosity of the Brockport Foundation, the College sponsors students to work with faculty mentors on the mentor's research for up to eight weeks during the summer. Students present the results of their work at Scholar's Day, conferences outside the College, and IEL sponsored events. This competitive program is open to all Brockport undergraduate students who will be returning the following academic year. Selected students receive a stipend and free housing in residence halls. The application and rubric  are available on-line. Applications are due February 21

Scholars Day

Started in 1984, Scholars Day has provided the opportunity for the Brockport community to learn and engage in other student's scholarly work.  This interdisciplinary scholarly event allows students to present their work through oral presentations, poster presentations, and artistic performance.  In 2011, the College launched The Spectrum, a faculty-reviewed journal of Scholars Day works.  Details about Scholars Day can be found here.

Undergraduate research opportunities offered by external sponsors may be found on the Fellowships and Useful Links pages.
