The Registry of Undergraduate Researchers
The Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) 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 many fields including Psychology.
Any undergraduate may click HERE to fill out a simple information form. Students may also elect to complete a longer curriculum vitae form. There is no charge to the student and 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 support opportunities.
The hope that students who are currently in their junior year will register now, but anyone with undergraduate research experience may register at any time. Students can update their listing as appropriate, to include any summer research experience or information about senior theses and test scores.
CUR believes that this service will be a great benefit for both students and graduate schools by narrowing the search for the right match. So, if you are interested in graduate school please take a moment to register now. Be sure to include a statement of your research interests, as this will be important for making the match.
