News and Events


The Undergraduate Research Program is an initiative of the Office of Academic Affairs and the Honors College designed to promote, support and fund the involvement of undergraduate students in the active research community at Old Dominion University.

The program's goals are to:

  • facilitate the expansion and development of faculty mentored, undergraduate research experiences across colleges and departments,
  • work to connect top students with faculty members active in undergraduate research mentoring,
  • promote the achievements of our undergraduate researchers, and
  • develop funding opportunities for colleges, departments, faculty members and students to support undergraduate research and travel.

These programs are open to all ODU students in good academic standing who are interested in becoming involved in research. Please use the list of links on the sidebar to find information about the Undergraduate Research Program's latest funding initiatives and events.
