Information & Resources for UMD Students

Our primary mission is to support UMD undergraduate students in engaging research opportunities in all possible forms. 

Our focus is not on connecting students with individual researchers but instead on empowering you to identify potential research opportunities at UMD and beyond, to make a strong case for yourself as a candidate for research opportunities, and to communicate your research findings and experiences with a range of academic and non-academic audiences.


Please review the linked resources below to benefit from our many forms of support.
