Research and Creative Projects for Undergrads

The Research and Creative Projects Office helps undergraduate students find opportunities to apply what they learn in classrooms to dive deeper into a field of their interest. All students are encouraged to participate in this high-impact practice. Doing research or having hands-on experience in creative projects boosts students’ chances for employment or enhances their placement into a robust program in a professional or graduate school.

This Summer

Research projects and creative scholarly activities continue to be part of the learning pathways this summer. One of these activities is known as Summer FUNdamentals. Summer FUNdamentals are summer workshop series designed to support students engaged in undergraduate research or creative practice at UW Bothell. All students involved in research and creative projects at the UW Bothell campus and beyond are encouraged to attend. Staff and faculty are also welcome.

Research Symposiums, Presentations, and Fairs

""Students are encouraged to present their research or creative projects throughout the year. The UW Seattle Undergraduate Symposium takes place every May and features student oral presentations, visual arts & design displays, or research posters. Applications to present are usually due in February (check our calendar!).  
At UW Bothell, most Schools have time to present at the end of the quarter with a research fair or capstone presentations. This is a great time to meet people with similar interests and practice presenting your research to a broader audience. It's time to celebrate! Learn more about research fairs.

 


Get Published!

""Many students share and publish their work before they even graduate! We recommend starting with journals or publications dedicated to undergraduates. Looking a little broader, many local organizations and non-profits would love to publish your work in their print journals. Some students even author in peer-reviewed literature because of the research contributions they made working with their faculty mentors!
