Undergraduate Opportunities Outside the Classroom

Explore Undergraduate Opportunities

Every year MU makes thousands of dollars available to support student and student-faculty scholarly and creative work. These funds create opportunities for students to build their resumes, develop new skills, and develop professional relationships with mentors and peers. Many of the funds are open to all students, while others are restricted to specific majors.

A table with deadlines and links to the application form can be found HERE. Click HERE to add all of the due dates to your calendar. Finally, if you have questions about any of the finds, please feel free to contact Jeffry.porter@millersville.edu with any questions.

In addition to pursuing opportunities at Millersville, you should also consider pursuing opportunities outside of Millersville. These links provide information on the world of undergraduate research opportunities outside of Millersville.
