Using the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Database

Research mentors across Penn State (i.e. graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, faculty and research staff) interested in connecting with undergraduates can use our searchable database to share their opportunities for undergraduate research.

All research opportunities should comply with University safety guidelines and precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
