Participating in authentic research is an important part of academic life at CUNY. We are committed to broadening this participation through several programs and initiatives. We offer resources to help undergraduates find a mentored research experience at CUNY, and lists opportunities for students to share their research findings with the CUNY community.
The CUNY Research Scholars Program provides funded laboratory experiences for Associates degree students over a one-year period.
CSURP is a ten-week program that offers a hands-on research experience and is open to students interested in five key research areas: environmental science, nanoscience, neuroscience, photonics, and structural biology.
This research opportunity is ideal for students interested in studying the promise and problems of an African metropolis with possible topics including: comparative urban studies, immigration, social service delivery, public health, housing and homelessness, urban ecology, informal sector entrepreneurialism, post-apartheid transition, and race and racism.
