UVA Undergraduate Research Network

The Undergraduate Research Network (URN) was formed in 2001 to foster an undergraduate research community here at UVA. Now in its 8th year of existence, URN continues to promote undergraduate research. In particular, URN hopes to:

  • Encourage students to initiate research projects.
  • Present information about current research opportunities.
  • Increase the visibility of undergraduate research at UVA.
  • Offer guidance and mentorship to students interested in research.
  • Publicize funding opportunities and research-related events.
  • Increase undergraduate access to UVA’s resources.
  • Provide a forum for students to showcase the results of their research and reflect upon their experience.
