Below are a few links to internal research opportunities for undergraduate students. We invite you to set up an advising appointment with our Assistant Director of Undergraduate Research so we can assist you with navigating the process of finding and applying for research experiences.
McNair Scholars Program
The McNair Scholars Program prepares selected undergraduate students from low-income and/or first-generation college families, or who are members of underrepresented groups, for future doctoral study and faculty careers. It is a challenging program that provides opportunities for undergraduate research and faculty mentoring along with intensive advising and assistance with the graduate school admission process.
Arnold Mitchem Fellows Program
The Arnold Mitchem Fellows Program, named after Arnold L. Mitchem, PhD, is a DePaul University program designed to prepare sophomore status undergraduates from backgrounds underrepresented in higher education who possess excellent academic records and a commitment to complete a graduate degree for doctoral study and entrance to academic careers. Aligned with the McNair Scholars Program and connected to pre-college partnership and pathway programs for Chicago schools managed by the Center for Access and Attainment, Mitchem Fellows serves students beginning in the sophomore year.
