Undergraduate Research Program (URP)
What is the Undergraduate Research Program?
A research program specifically designed to allow students in the College of Science and Technology to work with distinguished Temple faculty members on both the Main campus and the Health Sciences campus to complete hands on research in their particular field of interest. The program runs in the Fall, Spring and Summer semesters. Eligibile students can apply for the semester that best fits their schedule.
Why Participate in the Undergraduate Research Program?
The Undergraduate Research Program is designed for students with no research experience to train with faculty who will guide them in developing research skills which will enable them to collaborate with other faculty or conduct independent research projects in the future. Post-undergraduate, professional degree programs, and employers seek students who have gained “hands-on” laboratory experience outside the classroom. Throughout your participation in the program, you will build relationships with faculty, post-doctoral students, and peers which connects you to research, educational and career opportunities. Many URP participants have completed independent research projects which have led to presenting at National Conferences and co-authoring research papers with world renowned scientists.
