FOSTERING EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING THROUGH
The office of Undergraduate Research Scholars works hard to provide students a wide array of opportunities to conduct cutting-edge research led by Mines faculty mentors. Research opportunities include fellowships, research assistantships, and even obtaining credits for research. Programs such as the Freshman Innovation & Research Scholar Training (FIRST) and Mines Undergraduate Research Fellowship (MURF) can help incoming students get a head start in their field of interest.

The FIRST fellowship gave me my first experiences in a professional lab, and enriched my education in countless ways.

FIRST helped me solidify my interest in continuing research as an undergraduate at Mines and in post-undergraduate work.
