The Value of Undergraduate Research Workshop (VURW) - Multiple Dates Available

During this workshop, we will discuss the importance (i.e. the personal and professional benefits) of conducting research as an undergraduate student at the University of Illinois. Students will leave the workshop with (1) a better understanding of how to deal with problems faced when getting started in research, and (2) an idea of how undergraduate research can benefit them both personally and in their future careers.

 

Participation is by advanced registration only; there are limited spots available. We have several date offerings available, students only should register for one date.

Details and registration link can be found at:   http://undergradresearch.illinois.edu/programs/workshops.html

 

Getting Started in Undergraduate Research Workshop (GSIRW) - Multiple Dates Available

During this workshop, we will discuss the various forms of undergraduate research that take place on campus, guide students to develop a plan of action to locate research opportunities on campus, and discuss ways to contact faculty research mentors. Students will leave the workshop with (1) a better understanding of undergraduate research and how it takes place on our campus, (2) increased confidence to contact faculty research mentors, and (3) a list of faculty mentors to contact.

 

Participation is by advanced registration only; there are limited spots available. We have several date offerings available, students only should register for one date.

Proposal Writing for Undergraduate Research Workshop (PWRW) - Multiple Dates Available

During this workshop, we will discuss the fundamentals of proposal writing, guiding students to formulate successful research projects and explain their research in a concise and compelling manner that is understandable to a general audience. Students will leave the workshop with (1) basic knowledge about research proposals and their structure, (2) tactics and tools to write successful research statements, and (3) a list of resources for assistance in the writing process.

 

This workshop is a collaboration between the Office of Undergraduate Research and The Writers Workshop. We have several date offerings available, students only should register for one date.
