For Students

Undergraduate Research - Information for Students 

If you are an undergraduate student interested in pursuing research, it is first important to familiarize yourself with what research is and how best to go about it. Please read through the pages under the ‘For Students’ tab and, most importantly, attend a quarterly CCRF Undergraduate Research Information Session

What is scholarly undergraduate research

Keep in mind that undergraduate research is predicated on a relationship with a faculty mentor and is a privilege, not a given. For more information about getting started as an undergraduate researcher, please review the information on the Getting Started and Finding a Research Mentor pages and, to repeat, register to attend a quarterly CCRF Undergraduate Research Information Session. For information about funding, see the Research Grant Programs and Fund Research Opportunities pages. 

It may be helpful to read through the Our Students, Their Stories page to get a better idea about the kinds of research that students in the College have pursued in recent years. We also encourage you to click on the images below to read brief accounts of the research trajectories of three recent students in the College.
