Getting Started with Undergraduate Research Seminars

If you are new to undergraduate research, we recommend you attend one of our Getting Started Seminars. These weekly seminars go over what research is and how you can get involved. If you can’t make the times for the seminars you can watch a video on our undergraduate research YouTube channel. or contact us and set up a one-on-one Zoom appointment with one of our in-office staff members.

Interested in Awards & Fellowships?

Nationally competitive awards & fellowships can support a tremendously wide range of activities and are no longer “bookish” in the sense that they consider only academic merit. Awards programs expect students to be engaged in pursuits that extend and deepen their academic program and interests/goals/passions, such as relevant leadership activities, community projects and service, undergraduate research, and/or study and research abroad—in addition to strong (but rarely “perfect”) academic performance. There is no perfect, ideal, or even typical candidate. Review committees seek interesting applicants and consider the “whole person.”
