Students performing chemical research have dominated undergraduate research awards on campus and have won several national awards including Barry M. Goldwater Fellowships and places on the USA Today All-Academic Team. The undergraduate research program is open to students in all areas of the natural sciences and engineering, not just chemistry students.
