  • Student Opportunities

At WVU, we offer a range of undergraduate research opportunities and programs that feature hands-on research and creative endeavors with close faculty mentorship. We also connect with outside organizations to offer unique experiences across the United States and beyond. Some opportunities are limited to WVU students or to students from West Virginia. Some opportunities are only open to non-WVU students or to students who meet specific criteria. Review the kinds of research programs and funding available to you by looking through the information and links to the right.

There are a plethora of research, internship, and co-op opportunities available to you. In fact, there are so many that it is impossible to list them all in one place. For instance, a quick google search using different combinations of the search terms "research internships," "research experiences," "internships at companies," "undergraduate research," "government internships," with and without specifying your major (e.g., "history internships") finds hundreds of opportunities. So, don't hesitate. Be sure to conduct your own google search and search for opportunities offered by all economic sectors - public, private, charitable, academic, industrial, and government. This portion of the OUR website displays some of the more popular listings and search engines. Spend some time looking through the resources listed herein and carry out your own search as well.
