Undergraduate Research

Emerging Scholars Program

The Emerging Scholars Program provides an exciting opportunity for students at The University of Alabama to get involved in undergraduate research.  Emerging Scholars learn the foundational knowledge necessary to prepare them to work with a faculty mentor in their chosen field.

The mission of ESP is to improve and enrich student learning and to nurture student success. The research opportunities allow a student to gain experience that deepens their understanding in a field of study, develop the necessary professional skills, interact with a diverse group of other students and faculty members, and learn appropriate methods and techniques for presenting professional research.

ESP also benefits faculty by connecting them with students eager to learn and participate in research throughout their UA careers. ESP is specifically designed for students who have very limited experience in academic research.
