Does anyone know if Brown has undergraduate research opportunities?

Hi everyone! I'm a high school junior and I'm really interested in Brown. I was wondering if they have undergraduate research opportunities, especially in biology? Thanks!

Hello! I'm glad to hear you're interested in Brown and undergraduate research. Brown definitely offers various research opportunities for its undergraduate students, including those in the biology field.

One resource you can explore is the Undergraduate Teaching and Research Awards (UTRA), which allow students to collaborate with faculty on research projects across disciplines. Many students have found this to be an excellent opportunity for gaining hands-on research experience in their fields of interest.

Additionally, Brown's Open Curriculum lets you tailor your education to help obtain research skills specific to your goals. If there's a course you think will help you become a better researcher, it's open to you, even if it's in, the anthropology department rather than the biology one. You might also consider joining a faculty-led lab or research group, which can give you a better understanding of what the research process actually looks like, and potentially lead to projects in your desired field.

Finally, don't forget to connect with your academic advisor and professors once you're at Brown. They can direct you to relevant research opportunities and provide valuable advice on how to get involved. Best of luck on your college journey, and I hope you find the research experiences you're looking for at Brown!
