#FURIous Research

Made possible by the generous support of Mr. Ira A. Fulton and his family.

The Fulton Undergraduate Research Initiative (FURI) is designed to enhance your engineering and technical undergraduate curriculum by providing hands-on lab experience, independent and thesis-based research, and the opportunity to travel to professional conferences.

Many FURI participants have gone on to apply their unique experiences to work in industries, as well as graduate studies in engineering, medicine, law, and other disciplines.

Students in FURI develop an idea under the mentorship of a Fulton Engineering faculty member, then apply for funding. Once accepted, they perform research, attend workshops, prepare research summaries, and participate in the research symposium.

Are you just starting to explore research? Learn how to get started, find research opportunities and more at the Undergraduate Research site.

Who’s Eligible?

Fulton undergraduate students in good academic standing (i.e. not on academic probation) are eligible for two semesters of funding. Online Fulton undergraduate students are welcome to apply, too!

Faculty mentors must be faculty in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering.
