2. Remind yourself that, on the whole, you are good enough. You may not be perfect – but at least you’re trying. It take courage to step out, and to get up when you fall down….

Learn more about the Maryland Student Researchers program, and review over
100 available opportunities by visiting our website at:
http://www.ugresearch.umd.edu/studentresearchers.php

The Maryland Student Researchers (MSR) program serves as a University-wide
online bulletin board where UMD researchers post research opportunities for
undergraduate students. It is a great way for undergraduates to learn about
the rewards and challenges of academic research. Over 100 projects are listed
with more being added daily so check back regularly over the next several
weeks.

The MSR bulletin board is designed to help undergraduates find research
opportunities that are a good fit for their interests and qualifications, and
to help faculty members find students to assist with their research
project(s).  The research opportunities posted on the MSR website typically
call for students to spend around six hours a week working under the
direction of a faculty mentor on that faculty member’s own research.
Participating students learn skills and gain valuable experience that will
enhance their graduate school and job qualifications. Most positions are for
volunteers, some are paid.
ELIGIBILITY: Any student in good academic standing may apply directly for any
listed opportunities for which they meet the listed required skills.  It is
open to students of all majors and disciplines with an interest in research.
Most positions are offered on a volunteer basis, and selection of
undergraduate researchers is made solely by the faculty members who provide
the listed opportunities.
