Research

Students are invited to engage in research, scholarship, and creative activity with faculty mentors through Undergraduate Research, for which they may receive academic credit. It is the aim of the program to involve students in their own learning, develop teamwork and pride, enhance interdisciplinary learning, and share in the exhilaration of discovery.

Special events are held each year to enable students to celebrate their research, scholarship, and creative activity with the broader academic community.

The University of Montevallo is a Founding Institutional Member and a current Institutional Member of the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR), 734 15th Street NW, Washington, DC 20005.

  • Travel Awards

    The Office of Undergraduate Research provides funds to undergraduate researchers for travel to professional meetings and conferences to present papers or posters.  The travel awards in the amount of up to $500 each help students defray the cost of presenting their scholarly work.  The grant may be used for registration, travel, lodging, and related expenses.  Awards in excess of $500 for travel may be made, if funds are available.
