Research opportunities abound at Northern, as well as important programs that reward and encourage research and scholarly activities. Students are involved in a wide variety of scholarly activities, and often do so with the assistance of strong faculty mentorship.
To support and encourage students' scholarly activities, the Undergraduate Research Program provides an undergraduate research forum, travel grants, and research grants each year. If you have questions about undergraduate research at Northern, please contact Dr. Alyssa Kiesow.
NSU Undergraduate Scholarship and Activity Forum
This forum is a venue in which Northern undergraduates can present their research or scholarly activities. The next forum will be in April 2018 in the Williams Library Round Room on the NSU campus and will include a faculty symposium, student presentations, and keynote speaker. For more information, contact Dr. Alyssa Kiesow.
Details on undergraduate research and internship opportunities for current students are available on myNSU.
