Programs and Fellowships

Emerging Scholars Program

A competitive, year-long mentored research experience for first year students who are underrepresented in their area of study or traditionally underrepresented at institutions of higher education. 

Summer Researcher Community: OURS Collaborative Grant and Departmental Research

Each summer, CSB and SJU welcomes 60+ students to participate in our on-campus summer research community! OURS sponsors 13 faculty-student teams to complete a 10-week project through our unique Collaborative Grant. OURS also supports students doing departmental sponsored research through resources, events, and professional development opportunities.

Student Health Assistants

We administer a highly structured, yearlong experiential learning and research program for CSB and SJU pre-professional health students at the Emergency Department of St. Cloud Hospital.

Innovation Scholars

Our program administers this unparalleled opportunity for selected undergraduate students to research specific projects submitted by Mayo Clinic professionals or Medical Start-Up Companies in Minnesota.

Research Fellowships in Ethics

The Office of Undergraduate Research & Scholars is pleased to offer the Research Fellowships in Ethics, a summer research experience for SJU students interested in exploring ethics in relation to business, entrepreneurship, or other professional settings.

Distinguished Thesis

The CSB and SJU Distinguished Thesis is a three semester long independent research or creative work project on a subject of your own choosing. Students work under the direction of a thesis committee, composed of a primary advisor who is the expert in the area of research and two readers who have peripheral expertise. For many students, the pursuit of the Distinguished Thesis is the highlight of their academic career.
