Learning Through Research

Recruit Students with Research Experience

Graduate Schools: Register now to obtain data on undergraduates with graduate school aspirations and undergraduate research experience.
The Council on Undergraduate Research hosts a Registry of Undergraduate Researchers trained in North America who wish to attend graduate schools in the United States. The registry facilitates "matchmaking" between undergraduates with research experience and a desire to pursue an advanced degree, and graduate schools seeking high-quality students who are well prepared for research. Currently the registry is open to students and graduate schools in the fields of anthropology/archaeology, arts/humanities, biology/biochemistry, business, chemistry/biochemistry, economics, education, engineering, English and linguistics, environmental studies, geosciences, health professions, history, journalism and communications, mathematics/computer science, physics/ astronomy, political science, psychology, social work, and sociology.
Student-supplied records,including the student’s GPA, research experience, and other relevant information, are available to bona fide graduate schools that contract with CUR for this service. The data are available electronically via a password to an online database. Organizations or companies seeking the students’ information for other marketing purposes are not granted access. Graduate schools pay an annual fee of $1500 for access to the full database, or single departments may acquire access to student data from their disciplinary field only (e.g., chemistry/biochemistry; biology/biochemistry; physics/astronomy; psychology) for $300.
The Undergraduate Registry Database contains a list of CUR's institutional subscribers, if they wish to be listed. Graduate schools may provide a link to their websites and may provide a short description of opportunities such as research fields and fellowships. It is also possible for institutions to place an ad on the database website if the content is related to the mission of CUR and the Undergraduate Registry.
