An undergraduate research advisor can also help you to

  • narrow down your research focus
  • finalize your list of professors to contact
  • fine-tune your outreach email to professors
  • give you tips on how to communicate your research interests to professors
  • find funding sources such as scholarships and grants for your research
  • recommend where to present or publish your work
  • find a summer program for research
  • know your options for course credit

Advisors are also available to support students who have already attempted to get involved with undergraduate research, but have faced challenges in doing so. Learn more about our research placement advising here.
