The Academy of Undergraduate Researchers Across Texas is a collaboration between UT’s Office of Undergraduate Research and the LAUNCH office at Texas A&M University. AURA-Texas gives exceptional student researchers the chance to network with counterparts at another institution, attend professional development workshops, and showcase the ways in which their research serves the state of Texas. Each year, a new group of students work together to represent Texas undergraduate research from these institutions.
