Dear Students:


The Council on Undergraduate Research 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 the fields of Anthropology/Archaeology,
Arts/Humanities, Biology/Biochemistry, Business, Chemistry/Biochemistry,
Economics, Education, Engineering, English and Linguistics, Environmental
Studies, Geosciences, Health Professions, History, Journalism and
Communications, Mathematics/Computer Science, Physics/ Astronomy, Political
Science, Psychology, Social Work and Sociology.


Any undergraduate may go to
http://www.cur.org/projects_and_services/registry/<http://cur.networkats.com/members_online/utilities/emailct.asp?8FF630D1BFA84A9C9559F1129E63413E54FE6475C4B3E7C0F8A712AB1D2E6ACB>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.


Graduate schools may provide a link to their websites, and may provide a
short description of opportunities, such as research fields and
fellowships.


For graduate schools that wish to review the student information, there is
an access fee of $1,500 for the entire database, or $300 for one specific
discipline. Again, there is no cost to you as a student to create a profile.


Our hope that students who are currently in their junior year will register
now, but anyone with undergraduate research experience may register at any
time. You will be able to update your listing as appropriate, to include
any summer research experience or information about Senior Theses and test
scores. We also welcome submissions by students who are engaged in Masters'
Degree programs now but who plan on going on to a PhD program. Just fill
out the information on the form including the date you intend to enter a
PhD program and your date of completion of your undergraduate degree.
Upload a link to your CV that contains complete information about your
MS/MA degree activity (school, subject, thesis topic (if applicable), and
advisor).


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.


Please feel free to contact me, should you have any questions.


Sincerely,

Robin Howard
