Explore your interests

Your majors and degrees are important, but why stop there? The Experiential Learning Network (ELN) will help you customize your education through project-based collaboration.

ELN's Project Portal is a central place where students can find exciting and relevant experiences to gain skills, explore their passions and make a positive impact in the world under the mentorship of UB faculty, alumni and community partners.

Share your findings

At UB, we take pride in our undergraduates’ scholarly accomplishments. The annual Celebration of Academic Excellence is one of the ways we recognize outstanding student achievement and help you communicate your research results on and off campus.

CURCA helps fund UB students who are accepted to present their research at SUNY's undergraduate research fair in Albany, at disciplinary conferences and annual meetings, and at annual conferences hosted by the National Conferences on Undergraduate Research and Council on Undergraduate Research.

Apply for research awards

UB can help fund your research project and assist you in getting the experiences and skills you’ll need to compete for national and international research awards and scholarships.
