The College of Science congratulates these science students who received Undergraduate Research, Innovation and Creativity (URISC) awards to pursue research this summer. The OSU Office of Research funds URISC awards to enable students to pursue research guided by a faculty advisor during the summer.
The undergraduate experience is greatly enhanced by engaging in research early and often. Research helps students learn to balance collaborative and individual work. Undergraduate research also deepens critical thinking skills and improves academic performance.
