Undergraduate Research Leaders (URLs)

URLs are a group of outstanding undergraduate researchers from all disciplines.


The goal of the URL program is to increase awareness and participation of undergraduates in research in all disciplines. We aim to create a network of UW undergraduate researchers that can connect with their peers through outreach presentations, panels, community building events, and individual interactions, to provide support and guidance throughout their research journeys.
