Welcome to our September newsletter. Check out these updates from the OUR.
The Office of Undergraduate Research is pleased to share with our community our 2022–2023 annual report. Learn about how the learning experiences beyond the classroom are a high-impact practice with student success where we offer campus-wide support to undergraduate research through funding, education, events, and support.
Humans of the U - Ava Peitz
We are thrilled to share that Ava Peitz, the OUR's IRB & Clinical Research Leader was recently featured in @TheU's Humans of the U series!
Ava's early research experiences benefited her greatly, influencing her decision to change her majors from Chemical Biology & Psychology to Psychology & Political Science. Opportunities for early exploration are a great way for students to test their interests and make more informed decisions about the avenues they choose to pursue.

Are you an undergraduate researcher traveling to a conference? Need resources to support your research activities? Travel and Small Grants reviewed monthly. Deadline: end of the month, every month.
Early Exploration Scholars Program
The Early Exploration Scholars Program fosters student connections with faculty mentors. Early Exploration Scholars learn about research opportunities at the University of Utah and receive a $500 scholarship to explore connecting with prospective faculty mentors surrounding research. The program provides opportunities to grow research interests early on in an academic journey.
