How to Engage

Starting your research project at Boise State University can be a rewarding experience that develops innovative solutions and technologies or tackle complex environmental and societal issues. If you’re a new researcher, we want to make the process easy to understand and get started.

First, we’d like to invite you to review our Research and Creative Activity Ecosystem to view the overall steps for project success. If needed for your project, you can request funding support from the Division.
