External Undergraduate Research Resources


Student Opportunity Center

The Student Opportunity Center (SOC) is a clearinghouse for opportunities of interest to undergraduate students. The approximately 11,000 entries for conferences and competitions, journals, internship/co-op/research programs, and funding sources have listings for students from a large variety of majors. Southern Miss students can create an account and log in here with their USM email address and can filter the opportunities based on type, location, date, and their interests.



Council on Undergraduate Research

The Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) is a national organization that supports undergraduate student research collaborations with faculty mentors. If you have undergraduate research experience and are looking for graduate school opportunities, you may want to join the Registry of Undergraduate Researchers, a database that helps match your interests with graduate programs that purchase access to the database. This service is free to you and open to students in anthropology/archaeology, arts/humanities, biology/biochemistry, business, chemistry/biochemistry, economics, education, engineering, English and linguistics, environmental studies, geosciences, health professions, history, journalism and communications, mathematics/computer science, physics/ astronomy, political science, psychology, social work, and sociology. The CUR website also lists a variety of undergraduate student presentation and research opportunities.
