Undergraduate Summer Research

Undergraduates have many opportunities to participate in individual mentored research on the Piscataway/New Brunswick campus. Students work in the laboratories of carefully matched faculty mentors, and enhance their scientific and professional training through enrichment activities including GRE preparation, career counseling, graduate school admissions workshops, and intensive work on scientific writing and speaking.

Applicants should have completed at least one year of college, have strong academic credentials, and be interested in scientific careers. Students from underrepresented, non-traditional backgrounds or first-generation college are encouraged to apply.
