Undergraduate Opportunities

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

While assisting at CCFL, students have completed their Honors Thesis and presented findings at conferences or published them. Many of the undergraduates at CCFL have gone on to competitive graduate school programs nationwide.

A multicultural happy family.

As a volunteer, you will have the chance to learn, meet interdisciplinary experts, and make a difference in the lives of 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.
