Undergraduate Research Program

The Undergraduate Research Program serves as the University of Washington’s central unit for facilitating research partnerships between undergraduates and mentors.

We support…

  • Students who are interested in research, as well as those who are actively engaged in research.
  • Undergraduate research mentors (faculty, post-doctoral researchers, graduate students, etc.) with recruiting highly-motivated students and offer training sessions for those who wish to improve their mentorship practice.
