INFO SESSIONS - Maryland Student Researchers - Sept. 5-14


Learn more about the Maryland Student Researchers program, and review over 160 available opportunities by visiting our website at:

The Maryland Student Researchers (MSR) program maintains a University-wide online bulletin board where UMD researchers post research opportunities for undergraduate students. It is a great way for undergraduates to learn about the rewards and challenges of academic research. Over 160 projects are listed with more being added so check back regularly over the next several weeks.

The MSR bulletin board is designed to help undergraduates find research opportunities that are a good fit for their interests and qualifications, and to help faculty members find students to assist with their research project(s).  The research opportunities posted on the MSR website typically call for students to spend around six hours a week working under the direction of a faculty mentor on that faculty member’s own research.  Participating students learn skills and gain valuable experience that will enhance their graduate school and job qualifications. Most positions are for volunteers, some are paid.

The Maryland Center for Undergraduate Research will soon announce numerous early-semester information sessions to assist students who want to use the MSR bulletin board to identify suitable research opportunities, and also to provide advice about additional ways to pursue research opportunities.
