Center for Undergraduate Research and Fellowships


he mission of the Center for Undergraduate Research and Fellowships (CURF) is to develop, support, and celebrate faculty-mentored student research and creative projects with the overall aim of enhancing the undergraduate education experience and preparing students for careers in all areas. CURF provides centralized resources, programs, and support for undergraduate students to engage in faculty-mentored research projects and provides services for highly motivated students interested in fellowships and post-baccalaureate study.

CURF can help you make a difference in your Kean University experience:

  • We help develop partnerships between Kean faculty and students through the Freshmen Research Initiative and the Research Recruits program.
  • We advise undergraduate students who are interested in pursuing national fellowships.
  • We celebrate student-faculty research through University Research Days every April.

“Research” isn’t limited to science. It includes writing, artistry, and design. Research is any inquiry or investigation that makes an original intellectual or creative contribution to the discipline (from the Council on Undergraduate Research).

Kean University is an institutional member of the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR).
