NYU's College of Arts and Science has long been focused on promoting a variety of undergraduate research. Students at the College spend time working with teams of scientists in laboratories, picking through boxes in archival libraries, or interviewing eyewitnesses to cultural and historical events in foreign countries.
The opportunity for research is open to all students! Each of the College's majors offer Honors tracks that require a Senior Honors thesis, a capstone project requiring research within their major - and this is just one way that students can become involved in research.

Dean's Undergraduate Research Fund (DURF) - Apply for a DURF grant to help support pre-research training, your own research project, or a presentation at a conference
Undergraduate Research Conference - Present your research at our yearly Undergraduate Research Conference
- Participants in the Undergraduate Research Conference will have a research abstract published in Inquiry, CAS's undergraduate research journal
Research+ - DURF recipients conducting their research in New York in the summer can participate in Research+, a research-focused professional development series. Eligible students may have the opportunity to receive a housing stipend for the summer.
Women in Science (WinS) - The College of Arts and Science at NYU has established a Women in Science (WINS) program that seeks to create a more inclusive environment in research and related careers in STEM. A core group of undergraduate WINS Scholars are selected each year based on academic achievement, a demonstrated interest in research, future plans for a career in STEM, and a commitment to making STEM fields more inclusive for traditionally underrepresented groups, including women.
Diversity Undergraduate Research Incubator (DURI) - Students traditionally underrepresented in higher education interested in exploring and developing their research goals can participate in DURI, a summer research workshop series accompanied by a stipend to support living expenses during the program.
