Other Resources

The following is a list of UO research resources. This a non-exclusive list; please check with your department for more opportunities.

UROP seeks to support and advance faculty-mentored undergraduate research and creative scholarship through three areas of emphasis: resources for the UO community, funding mechanisms for students, and collaboration with campus partners. UROP encourages and supports undergraduate research and creative scholarship in all of the academic disciplines.


The Oregon Undergraduate Research Journal (OUR Journal) is an open access undergraduate research journal at the University of Oregon. It showcases some of the best research and publications by UO undergraduate students across all disciplines.  OURJ is edited and produced by an undergraduate student editorial board, comprised of individuals with rich writing, editing, and research experience and who are passionate about the publication of undergraduate work.


UOWGS welcomes the participation of scientists at all career levels, including undergrads. Undergraduates can join as members and attend our seminars and social/outreach events.

Are you interested in attending graduate school? Do you have a lot of questions but are not sure who to ask? We are happy to answer questions about graduate school or research.


There are subject-specific librarians to help you with your research projects. The UO libraries also offer scholarships for completed research.


Students of Color Opportunities for Research Enrichment — or SCORE — is now in its second year as an academically based, hands-on research opportunity that aims to enrich the learning environment for underrepresented minorities in the sciences and provide a foot in the laboratory door for those interested in performing basic research. The program operates with support from the Center for Multicultural Academic Excellence.
