The Office of Undergraduate Research is piloting a program to guide and support students through the process of securing an undergraduate research experience. Though many students find success after attending a Getting Started in Research Workshop, we recognize many students want longer-term support.
Students selected to be part of the Aspiring Researchers Alliance will build a community of practice with other students that goes beyond finding a research opportunity. Through multiple collaborative workshops, students will work together to secure their first undergraduate research position for the spring semester. Once you secure an opportunity, you will remain part of a mentorship cohort to support and inspire the next generation of aspiring researchers.
