Undergraduate Research Resource

Information regarding researchJoin UROP mailing list

Research isn't necessarily easy, but getting involved and finding a lab that you're passionate about and invested in should be! Many undergraduates encounter obstacles getting involved in research as well as receiving funding for their projects and conference travels. Our goal as the newly established Undergraduate Research Ambassador's (URA) Program, a student coalition formed out of Georgia Tech's Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP), is not only to inspire and encourage undergraduate students to get involved in the research community, but also to make it as easy as possible. Ambassadors are here to give a student perspective to common challenges that arise for undergraduate researchers, bridge the gap between elite faculty and bright minded students, and bring enriching programs to Georgia Tech's research community. Research is one of the best ways to get your hands dirty, and you have the chance to do that at one of the best research institutes in the world. Now is your time to get involved! Use this site to learn more about the research going on around Georgia Tech's campus, find scholarship and funding opportunities, and stay up to date with Tech's research community!
