The office of undergraduate research at North Central College gives students the ability to generate new knowledge and contribute innovative ideas through a variety of research opportunities.  Programs sponsored in our office allow students to collaborate in a research project with a faculty member, propose their own research study at North Central or abroad, and share their work with others at events such as the National Conference on Undergraduate Research.  At its core, undergraduate research helps students learn by directly engaging with their field rather than just learning about it from a textbook.

Your Support Will Help Fund
• The Summer Undergraduate Scholarship Program (SUSP), which pairs students with faculty mentors to collaborate on a research project during the summer months.
• The Richter Grant and Richter Fellows Program, which provide funding and support for students to propose their own research project to pursue it with faculty guidance.
• The Student Conference Travel Fund, which allows North Central College students to travel to regional and national conferences to share their research findings with the broader public.
• The Rall Symposium, which allows students to present their scholarly work to the North Central community on Honors Day which is held at the end of the spring semester.
