Launchpad to STAR

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​In an effort to support student engagement in early undergraduate research, Undergraduate Research & Enrichment Programs (UREP) is proud to announce Launchpad to STAR. Students are invited to participate in a variety of workshops designed to help them understand what research is and how to get involved. Many workshops will be offered in Fall Term (face-to-face); if students are unable to attend a given workshop or it is not offered, they will also have the option of asynchronously completing the workshop and an accompanying worksheet. Learn more about the program, eligibility requirements, and how to participate on the Launchpad page on the UREP Sharepoint.

Current student applications for the 2023-24 STAR Scholars Program are closed. All applicants will be notified of decisions by the beginning of the Spring Term.
