Maryland Student Researchers Program
The Maryland Student Researchers program is a database of on-campus research opportunities for undergraduates. It is designed to help undergraduates find research opportunities and to help faculty members find research assistants. The projects typically call for students to work four to ten hours a week (may be unpaid or paid) under the direction of a faculty mentor on that faculty member’s own research. Students learn skills and gain valuable experience that will enhance their graduate school and job qualifications. In addition, students work closely with faculty members outside the classroom, allowing them to develop professional relationships with faculty and to make significant contributions to faculty research.
