Council on Undergraduate Research
The Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) and its affiliated colleges, universities, and individuals share a focus on providing undergraduate research opportunities for faculty and students at all institutions serving undergraduate students.
CUR offers their own Student Resource Center, which offers further information on networking, applying for and presenting research, and where to find further research opportunities. Visit their Student Resource Center page for more information.
