Undergraduate Opportunities

Undergraduate students assist in many of the research activities at CCFL. They typically obtain research credit hours for their work, but they are also occasional funded projects. There are also opportunities through the university's Undergraduate Creative Activities and Research Experience (UCARE) program.

Our students have completed their Honors Thesis and have presented their findings at conferences or published their findings. Many of the undergraduates at CCFL have gone on to competitive graduate school programs around the nation.

A multicultural happy family.

As a volunteer, you will have the chance to learn, meet others and make a difference in the lives of those who work with children and families. Volunteers have the opportunity to assist with a variety of research, service, and training projects.

Internship opportunities

Our internship opportunities prepare undergraduates and graduate students to think differently and drive innovation in research, policy, and practice. Positions may be full-time, part-time, paid or unpaid and many University of Nebraska–Lincoln departments allow you to earn academic credit in conjunction with an internship.
