Center for Undergraduate Research and Scholarship

The Center for Undergraduate Research and Scholarship (CURAS) supports and facilitates undergraduate research across all schools and colleges at Creighton University. Creighton has been recognized repeatedly by US News and World Report as an exceptional leader in undergraduate research and creative projects. CURAS aims to continue to develop and showcase this thriving research culture on our campus.

Whether you are a student interested in learning more about research opportunities on campus, or a faculty member looking to collaborate with undergraduates in your research, CURAS is here to help. One primary way we do so is by offering grants to both faculty and undergraduates in support of research projects. Please look around our website to learn more about who we are and what undergraduate research looks like at Creighton.
