At Wingate University, students conduct undergraduate research beyond the classroom and laboratory walls. In fact, research opportunities carry students away to different parts of the United States and even abroad.
No matter what research you decide to conduct or where it takes you, a professor mentors you along the way. Your research could even be selected for publication in a journal. And while delving into your topic of choice, you’ll pad your résumé or graduate school application.
Seven teams of one student and one professor are selected to undertake a 10-week summer research project. If you’re chosen to participate in this competitive program, you could receive funding for travel and on-campus housing during the summer. After the research is complete, students also receive funding to participate in conferences to share their findings.
The Wellspring Symposium is a multidisciplinary showcase of student research, community engagement/service/experiential learning projects, entrepreneurial endeavors, internships, innovative ideas, study abroad experiences, and creative works by Wingate University students during the academic year.
There are plenty of opportunities in our surrounding communities to apply your curiosity in the lab, field, city or farm. Keep up with Wingate partners to find the right opportunity for your research.
