Wyoming Research Scholars Program

The Wyoming Research Scholars Program is a university-wide UW Science Initiative program that pairs undergraduate students with faculty mentors to participate in cutting-edge research starting as early as their freshman year. The majority of practicing scientists, as well as corporate and civic leaders, credit an early research opportunity in college as having a profound effect on affirming their career path and on their personal growth. Research internships demonstrably build confidence and competence in young scholars at a formative stage in their training. 

Program Goals include:

  • Attract top high school graduates from Wyoming to the University of Wyoming

  • Retain promising students in the sciences at UW through early involvement in science research, department seminars, and public outreach events

  • Pair talented college students with a faculty mentor who can model the scholarship, teaching, service, and outreach activities of a professional scientist

  • Teach science writing and presentation skills to undergraduates via regular participation in UW’s Annual Undergraduate Research Day and public outreach events (e.g., UW Planetarium, Biodiversity Institute, State Science Fair, Women in Science).
