Research Opportunities for CNAS Students

California Alliance for Minority Participation (CAMP)
CAMP encourages underrepresented students in the STEM fields to successfully complete science degrees and further pursue their studies at the graduate and professional levels.

Digital Agriculture Fellowship
The Digital Agriculture Fellowship (DAF) is designed for undergraduate students to gain hands-on experience in agriculture and research. Students selected for each cohort will complete approximately 15 months of hands-on research and networking experience, with an additional opportunity for externship participation.

Research in Science and Engineering (RISE)
RISE is a summer research program that prepares students for graduate and professional study by providing valuable research experiences, training, seminars, meetings with the Divisional Dean, and professional development workshops.

Research Experiences for Undergraduates. Focus on applications of thin films or monolayer materials for chemistry, physics, and engineering (EE, ME, BE, CE) students.

Maximizing Access to Research Careers (MARC) Undergraduate Student Training in Academic Research (U STAR) provides structured training programs to prepare high-achieving, underrepresented students for doctoral programs in biomedical research fields.

Mentoring Summer Research Internship Program (MSRIP)
MSRIP is a summer research program designed for rising juniors, seniors (and some rising masters students) from educationally and/or economically disadvantaged backgrounds to pursue their Ph.D.

UC Leadership Excellence through Advanced Degrees (UC LEADS)
UC system-wide academic preparation, two-year program designed to identify educationally and/or economically disadvantaged undergraduates pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), who will conceivably complete doctorate degrees. Two paid summer research experiences. First summer is spent at UCR, second summer is spent at a UC of your choice.

University Honors Program
The Honors Program connects the brightest UCR students with top professors at UCR for research, focus-driven classes, and individual projects.
