Fordham College at Rose Hill offers opportunities for our students majoring in all disciplines to pursue and disseminate research through three distinct avenues:
FCRH offers three types of grants for eligible students interested in conducting research: Undergraduate Research Grants, designed to support research during the academic year; Summer Research Grants, to provide support for students conducting research during the summer; and Travel Grants, to provide support for students presenting their research at a professional conference.
The Undergraduate Research Symposium
Undergraduates from all majors and programs are invited to present their original work through poster presentations, oral presentations, and artwork at the Undergraduate Research Symposium. The Undergraduate Research Symposium also provides a great opportunity for students across the disciplines to share their academic projects.
The FCRH Undergraduate Research Journal
The Fordham Undergraduate Research Journal (FURJ) is a student-run journal that features high quality, peer-reviewed, original research conducted by undergraduate students in the sciences, humanities, and social sciences. FURJ also includes scholarly book reviews, review essays, and feature articles. All research articles undergo a rigorous double-blind peer and faculty review process. FURJ is published annually – in print and online – in the spring semester. FURJ welcomes submissions from current Fordham students and recent graduates as well as students from other universities who conducted research at Fordham.
