About Us

As a major research university, UNH provides all students with the unique and valuable opportunity to conduct research during their undergraduate years.

UNH's Hamel Center for Undergraduate Research provides the resources and financial support for the research, scholarly and creative projects of UNH students. Whether it's investigating moose habitat, examining the effects of the European monetary union, or composing music for a dance concert, each year students from all fields of study receive grants to embark on their own explorations.

Through the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP), students may apply for Undergraduate Research Awards (URAs) and Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships (SURFs). The Hamel Center also administers the International Research Opportunities Program (IROP), Research Experience and Apprenticeship Program (REAP), INCO 590 & INCO 790, Study Abroad Research Grants, Honors Thesis Grants, and Research Presentation Grants.
