Student Resources and Awards


Explore the different opportunities provided by the Office of Undergraduate Scholarship

FGCU offers many opportunities for undergraduate students to engage scholarly activities both within and beyond the classroom. We support these experiences because of the effects that scholarly efforts have on student performance and learning; student scholars become more informed thinkers and communicators. Together, you will find support to initiate your scholarship, research and creative endeavors; resources to carry out your work; and avenues to present and share your discoveries.
