Undergraduate Research Opportunities


Two Tracks to Undergraduate Research Success:
Skills-building Workshops and Faculty-Mentored Research Experience

The purpose of the Undergraduate Research Program is to foster and promote multi-discipline undergraduate research engagement opportunities to students at Lincoln University. Students meeting the minimum program requirements regardless of discipline area or classification are encouraged to apply.

Students will receive up to $300 per semester of acceptable program enrollment. The program is very competitive and will be limited to twenty-five students per cohort. All students completing the program will be provided a certificate of completion in addition to the stipend.

Program Tracks

  • Track I designation is for students who have never engaged in undergraduate research and would like to enroll in the Undergraduate Research program.
