Undergraduate Research and Scholarship
What is UGR?
1. Undergraduate research is a way to get research experience before leaving college
2. As a student you will work closely with a faculty mentor on a shared research project
3. The research options are almost limitless and the experience is invaluable
1. Did you know that graduate and professional programs consider more than just GPA when considering admission?
2. To be competitive, you need to have experience in a research setting
3. Undergraduate research gives you this opportunity and allows you to present your research at local and possibly national scientific meetings. You may even be able to publish your research. Who?
1. Anyone can apply to be part of the undergraduate research program, but ideally, a prospective researcher will be entering their junior year, in planning on advancing in the sciences after graduation, and has at least a B average in their science courses.
2. The final decision will be made by the research mentor you choose to work with. How?
1. Complete the application
form and research the potential mentors in your department.
2. If you find something that interests you, contact that person directly. You can also contact your Departmental Undergraduate Research Representative or the College of Arts and Sciences Advising Center
3. Once you and your research mentor have agreed on a project, your advisor or mentor will register you for the course. When?
