Student Research


NEBRASKA is a leader in undergraduate research.

U.S. News and World Report recently ranked our Undergraduate Creative Activities and Research (UCARE) program as 1 of the 28 best university programs in undergraduate research and creative projects.

UCARE allows undergraduate students the unique opportunity to work alongside world-class faculty members and directly participate in the campus’ research and creative activities.

As a major research institution, the University of Nebraska will provide:

  • Firsthand research experience as an undergraduate student
  • A stipend for participating in UCARE
  • Strong connections with faculty who are leaders in their respective fields
  • Opportunity to develop new knowledge
