The Council on Undergraduate Research hosts a Registry of Undergraduate Researchers. The purpose of this registry is to facilitate matchmaking between undergraduates who have research experience and a desire to pursue an advanced degree with graduate schools seeking high-quality students who are well prepared for research. The registry is open to students and graduate schools in the fields of Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biology, Physics/ Astronomy, Mathematics/Computer Science, Economics, Geosciences, Engineering, Psychology, Sociology, Humanities, and Anthropology/Archaeology.
Any undergraduate may go to the Council on Undergraduate Research website to fill out a simple curriculum vitae form. There is no charge to the student, and records will be made available to bona fide graduate schools that contract with CUR for this service. Organizations or companies seeking the students’ information for other marketing purposes will not be granted access. Graduate school representatives may contact students to invite applications or visits to the campus and laboratory, or to share information about their research programs and financial support opportunities.
We hope that students who are currently in their junior or senior year will register now. Juniors will be able to update their listing at the end of the summer and during their senior year to include any summer research experience or information about senior theses and test scores. We also welcome submissions by students who are engaged in master’s degree programs now but who plan on going on to a Ph.D. program. Just fill out the information on the form, including the date you intend to enter a Ph.D. program and the date of completion of your undergraduate degree. Upload a link to your CV that contains complete information about your M.S./M.A. degree activity (school, subject, thesis topic (if applicable), and advisor).
CUR believes that this service will be a great benefit for both students and graduate schools by narrowing the search for the right match. So if you are interested in graduate school, please take a moment to register now. Be sure to include a statement of your research interests, as this will be important for making the match.
