Princeton Correspondents on Undergraduate Research (PCUR)

Launched in the fall of 2014, Princeton Correspondents on Undergraduate Research (PCUR) is a cohort of undergraduate researchers engaged to write about their experiences with research on the PCUR Blog.

Princeton Research Day

Princeton Research Day is a campus-wide celebratory event for undergraduates, graduate students, and postdocs to present their work to the Princeton community.


During the academic year, ReMatch offers programing to connect first and second year undergraduate students with graduate student mentors based on their shared interest in academic research. Participants may apply to participate in the ReMatch+ summer program to conduct a nine-week paid research project with their graduate mentor.

Summer Research Programs

The Office of Undergraduate Research runs two concurrent summer research programs for Princeton undergraduates. ReMatch+ is the culmination of the yearlong ReMatch program. It offers freshmen and sophomores an opportunity to carry out paid graduate-mentored research projects over the summer. The Office of Undergraduate Research Student Initiated Internship Program (OURSIP) provides a limited number of grants to freshmen and sophomores (and occasionally juniors) who have independently created or secured an unpaid faculty-mentored research internship over the summer. ReMatch+ and on-campus OURSIP participants join a diverse and inclusive community of researchers from across disciplines. Participants come together weekly through the Summer Research Colloquium workshops and social events. At the end of the summer, undergraduates in the ReMatch+ and on-campus OURSIP programs present their summer research to peers, FSI scholars and affiliated faculty at a mini-academic conference.

Additional established summer programs provide Princeton students, as well as students from other colleges and universities, with the opportunity to obtain hands-on research experience in specific fields. You can search the database for research program opportunities that match your interests.
