Summer Research Programs


Summer Programs For Ugs

Undergraduate students conducting summer research at Notre Dame are invited to participate in professional development and social events sponsored by REU and Fellowship programs in the Colleges of Engineering and Science, The Graduate School, ND International, and ND Research. These activities provide networking opportunities for students while students learn about specific topics intended to enhance their research experiences. 

New this year, the Brown Bag Seminar Series (BBSS) were held every Wednesday from 12-1 PM. The BBSS offered students the opportunity to network with their peers, meet faculty presenters, and learn about various research programs across campus, as well as to prepare for the Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium
