Registry of Undergraduate Researchers

The Council on Undergraduate Research Registry of Undergraduate Researchers is one tool that undergraduate students can use to assist them in their pursuit of a graduate degree. The purpose of this registry is to facilitate matchmaking between undergraduates with research experience and a desire to pursue an advanced degree, and graduate schools seeking high quality students who are well prepared for research. Currently the Registry is open to students and graduate schools/employers in nearly all fields.

Any undergraduate may go to to fill out a simple curriculum vitae form.  There is no charge to the student, and records will be made available to bona fide Graduate Schools or research programs that contract with CUR for this service.  More information is available at
