The purpose of this experience is to encourage faculty mentorship of talented undergraduate students in design and execution of high-quality research projects. Students will:
- Explore academic and career interests through faculty and graduate student mentorship.
- Choose projects representing all areas of study, including humanities, sciences, engineering, business, and social sciences. Students can also choose to engage research outside of their declared field of study.
- Join an established research project or team with the ability to collect and analyze data, co-author, present findings at conferences, and make other important contributions.
- Gain hands-on knowledge and application of research principles, a competitive and tangible asset for graduate and professional school applications, and an attractive skillset for future employers.
With the help of your Student Research Experience leader, you will meet twice per month with a program student leader and fellow program students and will receive personalized mentorship and guidance about research and campus resources.
Students in the Student Research Experience will work 5-10 hours per week to assist a faculty member, graduate student, or research team.
All Student Research Experience students will present their projects into presentations at the annual FSU PC Student Research Symposium in April.
