Undergraduate research offers valuable opportunities for advanced learning, professional development, and contributing to an academic field and society. However, some identities are drastically underrepresented in research at the undergraduate stage and beyond. This dearth in diversity impedes the advancement of knowledge across many fields of research and thus contributes to disparities and injustices in the population. Many organizations seek to rectify this underrepresentation by funding opportunities specific to individuals underrepresented in research. This session offers a space for students underrepresented in research to discuss challenges that they have faced in their academic careers and to hear about opportunities that will support their research endeavors. Please RSVP Here to attend.
