Undergraduate Research

The Office of Undergraduate Research provides intellectual and administrative support for students conducting faculty-mentored research at Oberlin College. The student-mentor relationships supported by this office have allowed students to transfer their curiosity from the classroom to the library, the laboratory, and field sites across the globe. The opportunity for learning and laboring under close faculty supervision provides students with a first-hand understanding of the rigor and discipline necessary to maintain an active research program. Through its coordination of the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship and Oberlin College Research Fellowship programs, this office strives to ensure gender, economic, and racial diversity among Oberlin graduates who go on to earn PhDs.
