Louisiana State University has a strong and growing tradition of attracting, nurturing, and providing research opportunities for undergraduate students. LSU, the state's oldest and largest university, is among the nation's most academically diverse public universities.
The sciences established significant externally-funded undergraduate research programs more than 20 years ago, resulting in a variety of opportunities campus-wide. For instance, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Engineering currently have NSF REU or RET programs. Other NSF-funded programs, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) research, and summer bridge programs further enhance the research culture at LSU.
