The program does not match students with faculty, so students are responsible for finding their own research mentors. Start by identifying faculty members whose research is of interest to you and then contact them directly to arrange interviews.
Once you have found a faculty research mentor, complete the application form. This will generate an automatic email to both you and your faculty research mentor:
- Save a copy of this email as it is confirmation of your application submission.
- The email includes a link for your faculty mentor to confirm the research assistantship. Be sure to follow up with your faculty research mentor to ensure that the s/he has received the email and is aware of the deadline. If your faculty research mentor does not receive the automatic email or is having difficulty with the form, contact Undergraduate Research.
Notifications of decisions will be sent via email three to four weeks after the application deadline. Students engaged in research that has a computational component should also consider applying for the Neukom Scholars program for research during junior and senior years.
