Participation in undergraduate research benefits students educationally, professionally, and personally. By conducting research at the undergraduate level, students gain hands-on experience for their resume and grad school applications, and get the opportunity to present and publish their findings in professional venues. This experience will give them the edge in virtually all of their future endeavors. Currently, 100% of the funding for undergraduate research awards and fellowships comes from donor gifts.
