Research opportunities

Inspiration. It comes from people, places and ideas.

UAF is a hotbed of all three — where everyone has a story to tell, where nature in its relentless grandeur brings true perspective, and where innovation reigns supreme. Venture outside the classroom, where fieldwork really is in the field — and in the forest, ocean, or any of the rugged terrain that makes up Alaska’s vast, natural laboratory. Around here, if you’re game, you’re in. Even undergrads work one-on-one with world-class faculty on advanced research.

This is where theory meets practice, and where hands-on experience gets its place in the sun.

The Undergraduate Research and Scholarly Activity office exists to support, develop and institutionalize UAF's diverse and robust programs of undergraduate research and creative scholarship.

Honors program

The Honors Program assists high-achieving and motivated students in making the absolute most of their undergraduate education. But it’s about more than being smart. It’s about being bold, pushing you intellect and pursuing scholarly opportunities. It’s exploring new places — in the mind and the world. It’s your home away from home, academically and socially, where you share small classes and rigorous thinking with student-scholars as inquisitive as you.
