Central Washington University has many programs that help support student research and scholarship.
The COTS Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) funds student researchers and their faculty mentors for up to six weeks (240 hours) of research during the summer. Effort may be full-time or part-time in working the funded hours, but must be completed between June 16 and September 15. A call for proposals is usually issued in Winter Quarter, with proposals due in early February.
The Upper-Division Scholarship Experience is a faculty-mentored research experience in either the Art & Humanities or the Sciences. With the help of a Douglas Honors College advisor, students choose the appropriate track in which to enroll. The program is 17 credits and consists of two five-credit courses in the Douglas Honors College and seven thesis and research credits in either the Douglas Honors College or the Science Honors Program.
The mission of the McNair Scholars Program at Central is to help low-income, first generation college students and students underrepresented in graduate education, reach their goals of attaining doctoral degrees. The McNair Scholars Program is a two-year program of scholarly activities that includes a paid, nine-week, full-time summer research fellowship, training in how to write and present a scholarly research paper, regional graduate school visits, guidance through the graduate school application process, and other co-curricular and pre-professional training.
The Science Talent Expansion Program (STEP) is for any student interested in majoring in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics at Central Washington University. Academic support and mentoring is offered along with special courses with hands-on activities, STEP-specific sections of ENG 101/102 and UNIV 101, STEM-faculty mentored research experiences, and financial support for eligible students.
