Welcome and a few words

Welcome and a Few Words

  • Many opportunities – find a research mentor. Talk to students about labs.

  • Some opportunities are volunteer (forms), through course credit, or paid hourly.

  • Prestigious opportunities

    • NSF-REU (National Science Foundation – Research Experiences for Undergraduates)

    • NSF-GRFP (NSF – Graduate Research Fellowship Program) – Funds graduate school, due Nov. 13
