CUR Registry for Undergraduate Researchers
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 Anthropology/Archaeology, Arts/Humanities, Biology/Biochemistry, Business,
Chemistry/Biochemistry, Economics, Education, Engineering, English and
Linguistics, Environmental Studies, Geosciences, Health Professions, History,
Journalism and Communications, Mathematics/Computer Science, Physics/ Astronomy,
Political Science, Psychology, Social Work and Sociology.
Any undergraduate may go to
to fill out a simple curriculum
vitae form. There is no charge to the student. 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
There is no cost to students to
create a profile. CUR hopes
that students who are currently in their junior year will register now, but
anyone with undergraduate research experience may register at any time.
Students will be able to update the listing as appropriate, to include any
summer research experience or information about Senior Theses and test scores.
CUR also welcomes submissions by students who are engaged in Masters' Degree
programs now but who plan on going on to a PhD program. Students should fill out
the information on the form including the date of intended entry to a PhD
program and date of completion of the undergraduate degree. Upload a link to a
current CV that contains complete information about MS/MA 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. Students should be sure to include a statement of
research interests, as this will be important for making the match.
