Research Opportunities

VCU Launch

VCU Launch is an Honors College initiative to encourage undergraduate research at the early stages of students’ academic careers and to celebrate their successes. Sponsored by the Honors College in conjunction with UROP, Auctus: VCU’s Journal of Undergraduate Research and Creativity and the National Scholarship Office, VCU Launch is open to all students, linking them to research opportunities such as conferences, publications, internships, grants and fellowships. Each spring, at the Undergraduate Symposium for Research and Creativity, VCU Launch honors five first-year and second-year students who have produced research posters that exhibit remarkable rigor and vision.
