High School and Undergraduate Research

EHSC laboratories have a strong history of supporting high school and undergraduate research, as evidenced by the diverse projects undertaken by students. Students in our labs have been highly successful at obtaining funding for their projects, and their work has been recognized in the multiple awards and scholarships they have received during their tenure at Oregon State University.
"...this experience has been a whirlwind of activities ranging from new and exciting research to exploring a new city and traveling...personal attention from my mentors..."
-Michael Rankin (Kolluri Laboratory), Junior from University of Wisconsin
Many opportunities are available for high school and undergraduate students to work in EHSC laboratories. Below are some programs providing funding and additional opportunities for students.
