Referral Process for Students 

Please feel free to refer all students to the OURI office who are interested in getting involved or started in research, we are happy to assist them!  Below you will find a few resources that may be helpful in the first steps of getting involved in research or creative activity!

How to get Started

 

Submit an Undergraduate Research Opportunity 

Each week OURI sends out an announcement to the mailing list with upcoming opportunities such as ways for undergraduates to get funded, attend presentations, conferences and workshops, events, and much more.  Faculty interested in submitting an undergraduate research opportunity, please email requests to ouri@fau.edu and include the following information:

  • Name and email of faculty mentor 
  • Name and email of graduate student (if appropriate) 
  • Project title 
  • Project description (2-3 line description of what the student will be doing) 
  • Start date and anticipated end date of project 
  • Student expectations/qualifications: e.g. course work prerequisites, instrumentation skills, time commitment. 
  • Deadline for applicants 
  • Application details: what you want from the student, e.g. CV, research experience, etc. 
  • web link or flyer with additional information (if available)

Please note: undergraduate students engaged in research projects may require additional research compliance training and certification.  For further information please visit the Division of Research website.  Additional research compliance information can be found here.

We highly suggest students conducting any research or scholarly activities participate in   CITI – the Collaborative Inter-Institutional Training Initiative   training.  This provides access to courses that are designed to be used by institutions and organizations to provide comprehensive training in a variety of areas such as Institutional Review Board (IRB), Good Clinical Practices, Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) and other areas. (content borrowed from the  FAU RCR  website).
