UGR opportunities for FLC students

Education beyond the classroom brings a different focus. At Fort Lewis College, we are here to help you find that experience through internship opportunities and undergraduate research support.

The combination of application and research enables students to use their technical skills in an environment that values work ethic, professionalism, innovation, integration, design, and discovery. Participation in these programs prepares students for the workforce or graduate school and helps determine career direction.


Opportunities we help you connect with

  • Research with FLC faculty
  • Internships with the National Labs
  • Internships with industry
  • Internships locally

Undergraduate Research Journal—Metamorphosis

Metamorphosis is an ongoing opportunity to publish FLC student work. Each semester, we select two outstanding student papers to submit for online publication in Metamorphosis, A North American Journal of Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity.

Village Aid Project

Work with a group of dedicated students, faculty, and community partners at Fort Lewis College who volunteer to design and construct water, sanitation, and hygiene systems in developing communities. Village Aid Project is a non-profit, student-based organization.

Pathways to Science

Pathways to Science is a project of the Institute for Broadening Participation. Pathways to Science supports pathways to the STEM fields: science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. We place particular emphasis on connecting underrepresented groups with STEM programs, funding, mentoring and resources.


As a COPLAC campus and under the terms of the Teagle Foundation grant, FLC will design, implement and evaluate a two-year pilot project for 'high impact' faculty-mentored undergraduate research at the consortium level. Specifically, the consortium seeks to enhance student learning by sharing disciplinary expertise across campuses in a 'distance' mode and re-envision faculty work and encourage institutional efficiencies at predominantly undergraduate, teaching institutions in the public sector.
