Grants and Opportunities Search Engines

The Office of Undergraduate Research supports a number of undergraduate research programs.  These programs listed on the left hand side are open to students across the University, but these are just a few of the many opportunities at Northwestern.

We have two amazing databases that can help you on your research journey. 

  • The Undergrad ARCH is a search engine to find research, creative, and engagement opportunities.  It has faceted search capabilities, enabling you to search in many ways.  You can search a subject area or interest like engineering or history, and you can search by location (Evanston campus, international…) or time frame (summer, year round…).  The best part is that you can do all of these searches at the same time, digging further into the opportunities to find the one perfect for you. 
  • Northwestern Scholars is a database will enable you to search areas of interest (such as cell biology) or specific concepts (such as gene expression)  and see which faculty members are working in that area, even identifying who they work with and what publications or grants they produce.

So, go ahead and search: the world is before you!

The Undergrad ARCH is for research, creative, and engagement opportunities for Northwestern undergraduates.

Northwestern Scholars is for searching Northwestern faculty research interests.
