Each year, the Office of Undergraduate Research recognizes an outstanding undergraduate researcher from each college/school at the University of Utah with an Outstanding Undergraduate Researcher Award. Recipients are selected based on their record of sustained commitment to developing research skills and knowledge under the supervision of a faculty mentor, evidence of independent and critical thinking, active participation in research-related activities on campus, and positive contributions to the research culture of campus.
