Students have many options when considering undergraduate research on Gonzaga's campus. For the most up to date information on program deadlines, faculty research projects and other general information on research opportunities available to Gonzaga students, visit Undergraduate Research.
Most faculty members in the Biology Department maintain active research programs supported by the Gonzaga Research Science Program (GSRP), Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI), the M. J. Murdock Charitable Trust, the National Science Foundation, or other funding organizations. Student participation in these programs can be both during the summer and during the academic year. Gonzaga's research program provides stipends for 10 - 12 weeks of full time work during the summer, and up to two semesters of support during the academic year. In some cases, research may also be done for credit, or for pay from a particular faculty member's outside funding. In addition, students involved in research are expected to present their research at regional or national scientific meetings, such as the annual Murdock College Science Research Program Conference, or another conference of interest. Travel grants are available to assist students in traveling to conferences.
