Conference on Undergraduate Research Registry of Undergraduate Researchers: Connect with Graduate Schools: CUR hosts a Registry of Undergraduate Researchers. The purpose of this registry is to facilitate matchmaking between undergraduates trained with research experience and a desire to pursue an advanced degree, and graduate schools seeking high quality students who are well prepared for research. Any undergraduate may go to the web site above to fill out a simple curriculum vitae form. There is no charge to the student. Graduate School representatives may contact students to invite applications or visits to the campus, or to share information about their research programs and financial support opportunities.
Free Physics GRE Flash Cards: This is a great resource provided free by Case Western Reserve University Physics. I have had several students tell me that they really found these flash cards extremely useful. For students who repeated the GRE having used the flash cards for their second try, they improved their scores significantly. A must for all students taking the physics GRE.
Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate: From the AGEP web page: The Alliance for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP) seeks to join together universities and colleges in the common mission of increasing the number of underrepresented minority students earning PhDs and positioning minority students to become leaders in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.
Pathways to Science: From the Pathways web page: PathwaysToScience.org is a portal website supporting pathways to the STEM fields: science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Particular emphasis is placed on connecting traditionally underrepresented groups with STEM programs and resources, including funding and mentoring opportunities.
On-line form for prospective graduate students who would like to receive timely information on graduate school scholarship/fellowship/traineeship opportunities, research opportunities, and new programs, and who would like to be reminded about deadlines.
Astronomy Notes: A nice collection of textbook chapters on a wide range of astronomy topics (including some peripheral items such as global warming).
Publishing Undergraduate Research
The online peer-reviewed journal Journal of Undergraduate Research is a publication wholly devoted to the publication of research done by undergraduates. REU students are strongly encouraged to publish their summer research projects in this journal.
