Time: 4-5 p.m.
Location: 9 Durant Hall

Speaker: Dr. Wendy Muse Sinek, Program Coordinator, Office of Undergraduate Research

Sponsor: Office of Undergraduate Research

If you are thinking about getting involved in undergraduate research, this workshop is a great place to start! You will get a broad overview of the research opportunities available to undergraduates on campus, as well as advice on how to find and work with a faculty mentor and/or get into a lab.

We will also let you know about upcoming deadlines and eligibility requirements for some of UC-Berkeley's most popular undergraduate research opportunities, such as the Undergraduate Research Apprenticeship Program (URAP), Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships (SURF), and the Robert and Colleen Haas Scholars Program, a senior capstone experience for all majors.

The workshop is open to all UC-Berkeley students regardless of major, but it may be especially useful for freshmen and sophomores. Any academically motivated student who is curious about campus funding opportunities for original research or creative projects will likely find the "getting started" workshop useful.
