Cadets have the option to join a professor in an area of research focus or cadets may propose a personalized research project in a particular area of interest. Stipends are often available for the summer undergraduate research, research travel, and presentation travel.
Undergraduate Research at VMI
The VMI Center for Undergraduate Research (VCUR) promotes and facilitates faculty-mentored undergraduate research to foster a culture of intellectual curiosity and academic challenge.
VMI operates on the notion that some of the most meaningful academic experiences of college students come through opportunities to be mentored one-on-one by faculty outside the classroom, while also believing in the merit of research and other inquiry-based experiences within a more traditional classroom setting.
