Chancellors Future Leaders in Research Program (CFLR) :Offering a unique opportunity to conduct research early in your college career, the Chancellor's Future Leaders in Research (CFLR) program allows you to take part in discovery in any of the 75 programs of study LSU offers. You will have the opportunity to work side-by-side with professors in a research setting, such as a laboratory or in the field, and learn what a career in your chosen field may be like. Once enrolled in the program, you will be partnered with a faculty mentor in a field of your choice. As a member of your mentor’s research team, you will receive guidance and support that will expand your knowledge and skills.The experience you can gain from the program will provide life-long benefits. From co-authoring an article and writing software, to conducting lab experiments and presenting findings, your experiences will provide a firm foundation on which to build your future success. All incoming freshmen who are Chancellor's Alumni Scholars, LSU Alumni Association Top 100 Scholars or Distinguished Freshmen are eligible for CFLR.
LSU/HHMI Undergraduate Research Program: Sponsored by a grant from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute to the Departments of Biological Sciences & Chemistry, College of Science
The Department of Biological Sciences at Louisiana State University, with funding from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Undergraduate Biological Sciences Education Program, is hosting nine week research opportunities for eligible undergraduate students in the Life Sciences and Chemistry. Work will be done in established laboratories, with interaction among scientists and peers. Students from other US colleges and universities are urged to apply. LSU students have three different research opportunities, inside and outside LSU. See the website for further details and application requirements.
LA-STEM Research Scholars Program: Offered through the Office of Strategic Initiatives and funded by National Science Foundation and Research Corporation, the Louisiana Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (LA-STEM) Research Scholars Program is a research program for undergraduates who are highly motivated, intellectually ambitious, committed to promoting diversity in the STEM disciplines, and planning to pursue terminal (Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D.) degrees. First year students majoring in physics, chemistry, and mathematics are particularly urged to apply.
Louisiana Alliance for Minority Participation (LAMP) Program: The Louisiana Alliance for Minority Participation is a comprehensive, statewide, coordinated program aimed at substantially increasing the number and quality of minority students earning baccalaureate degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines.
Louisiana Biomedical Research Network Undergraduate Research Program: The Department of Biological Sciences at Louisiana State University, in conjunction with the National Institutes of Health, Biomedical Research Infrastructure Network Program, is hosting nine week research opportunities for eligible undergraduate students in the Biological and Computational Sciences. Students interested in working on projects at the interface between the biological and computational sciences are encouraged to apply to this program. Work will be done in established laboratories, with interaction among scientists and peers.
LSU Pre-Doctoral Scholar’s Institute: The Pre-Doctoral Scholar's Institute is an intensive four-week summer program that prepares outstanding African-American undergraduates for doctoral study. The four-week institute introduces students to the culture of graduate education, helps them develop academic writing skills, and allows them to complete a research project under the direction of an LSU faculty member.
Ronald E. McNair Program: This program is designed to provide free tutoring, preparation and assistance to students applying for entry into graduate school. In addition, students will participate in a research and development project with a faculty member, be advised by a faculty mentor and awarded funding assistance in the areas of travel, stipends, and tuition.
Sea Grant Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program: The Sea Grant Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program provides undergraduates interested in pursuing advanced studies in marine-related disciplines with hands-on research experience. Previously funded projects have dealt with topics such as coastal ecology, fisheries, aquaculture, environmental engineering, and genetics.
Sigma Xi Grants-in-Aid of Research: Each year the LSU Chapter offers Grants-in-Aid of Research to LSU students pursuing degrees in the sciences and engineering.
Environmental, Biological and Materials Chemistry: The Summer 2007 Research Experience for Undergraduates in environmental, biological and materials chemistry provides upper-level undergraduates who plan to pursue advanced degrees in the chemical sciences with a nine-week intensive research program. Projects range from synchrotron studies to micro-instrument platforms for DNA diagnostics, with opportunities to interact with faculty, graduate students and other chemistry professionals.
