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 seeks to assist graduate schools in their recruitment of high-quality students well prepared for research and undergraduates with research experience who wish to pursue an advanced degree. 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 accredited graduate schools and/or individual departments 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.
Fee Structure
Graduate schools pay an annual fee of $1,500 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.
These fees are waived for CUR Enhanced Institutional members and CUR Institutional members receive a 50% discount.
The Registry of Undergraduate Researchers contains a list of subscribed Graduate schools, who elect 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 advertisement on the database website if the content is related to the mission of CUR and the registry.
