OUR Works! is a wonderful oppurtunity for students to get paid to be engaged in undergraduate research. Last year OUR had over 40 students in the OUR Works! program. OUR Works! is an interactive learning and professional development oppurtunity for UWF undergraduate students. Each OUR Works! position is in place for 1 academic year. OUR Works! allows UWF undergraduate students to experience their major by getting into the mentor's workshop, lab, or studio and having the chance to work on the same research as their mentor. At any point in the experience the student has the potential of becoming a co-author on a major study being done here at UWF and publisjed in an article. For more information please click here.
