OURS Connects is an undergraduate research experience open to CSULB students of all colleges and disciplines. The semi-structured research program pairs undergraduate students with faculty research mentors so that students may contribute to the advancement of faculty research, scholarly, and creative activities (RSCA). Students will also be paired with a seasoned Peer Advisor who will guide them through the project search process and the overall research experience. In addition to receiving resume and cover letter help, you will attend monthly research workshops to gain foundational research skills. Compensation may include volunteer hours, course credit or pay via grant funds.
