Utah State University’s undergraduate research program is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year, making it the second oldest undergraduate research program in the nation, second only to MIT. Joyce Kinkhead, Associate Vice President of Research at USU, says undergraduate research helps students build stronger resumes with real-life experiences, making them better candidates when shopping the job market. Kinkhead says undergraduate research programs such as this are unique. Most research universities are only interested in graduate students and post-doctorals. She says twice a year undergraduate research gives 50 to 60 Undergraduate Research and Creative Opportunity Grants. In the last 10 years, the program has given out almost 1,000 grants to assist students in their projects and research.
