Undergraduate Research Opportunities

Take advantage of several exciting research opportunities, ranging from collaboration with faculty to engaging in  your own research.

Farrell Fellowship
In our elite, research mentorship program, your are paid to work on faculty-created research projects. You also network with other Farrell Fellow students while receiving in-depth research training. 

Ginsberg Undergraduate Research Grants
Have an idea of your own? These grants support student-initiated projects conducted in the collaboration with a Political Science faculty member.

Honors Thesis
Did a class or experience inspire you to think further on a topic? Paired with a faculty advisor, conduct your own research and write an honors thesis in the political science honors program.

Political Science students are encouraged to explore the opportunities and resources offered by the Northwestern Office of Undergraduate Research. The Office of Undergraduate Research awards grants to students pursuing their own research and manages the Undergraduate Research Assistant Program (URAP) for students to gain research experience through working with faculty.
