Welcome to REACH Main Content
This competitive program, open to all disciplines, offers 20 grant awards each year to students working on an independent research and/or creative activity project with a faculty mentor. REACH also sponsors the University's annual Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities Forum, held in late March or early April, in which students present posters describing their research projects. We also publicize and promote other undergraduate research and/or creative activity opportunities (see below) via this web site, by producing an informational brochure, and by publishing an annual tabloid describing some of SIU Carbondale's many undergraduate research accomplishments and awards over the past year.
Karen Renzaglia, PhD, Professor at the Plant Biology-SIUC was instrumental in establishing the Research-Enriched Acadmic Challenge.
