About Our Office

The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) serves as a valuable resource for students beginning to explore the concept of undergraduate research. From helping students discern their own research paths and find a mentor, to connecting them to research funding and programs at WashU and beyond, to providing opportunities to share their work, we support all undergraduates, in all disciplines, and in all schools.
