This fall the University Libraries are opening the Undergraduate Research Jumpstart program to all students across the Commonwealth! The 5-module program runs from October 4, 2021, to December 10, 2021 and students can enroll here: F21 UGR Jumpstart Enrollment (

Accessing an undergraduate research opportunity can be stressful and unclear. This program intends to make the process more transparent and accessible for all students by helping students understand the nature of the research process and how to pursue undergraduate research at Penn State. In this program, students will explore resources and services that will help in identifying their research interests, while also gaining insight into the process of applying for undergraduate research opportunities.
