Support Undergraduate Research at Brandeis this Giving DEISday

Today, we celebrate #GivingDEISday at Brandeis, a day when the community comes together to support our students across the university. This year, the School of Arts and Sciences is prioritizing our efforts to strengthen opportunities for and access to undergraduate research across all fields through our critical Undergraduate Research and Creative Collaboration (URCC) Fund. 

As you may know, we established the URCC office in early 2020 to facilitate connections between undergraduates seeking research experience and faculty seeking research assistance. I am pleased to report that the office has connected scores of students to exciting research opportunities over the past two years. This year, we are placing our focus on expanding the number of entry-level research experiences and thus foster equity and inclusion, as we simultaneously strive to increase access to these opportunities for all of our students.

Historically, undergraduate research assistants, especially first-time researchers, have been frequently unpaid, which favors students who do not need a paying job during the semester or summer. We established the URCC fund to ensure that all of our outstanding undergraduate students—regardless of their financial circumstances—are able to take advantage of the amazing opportunities with our field-leading faculty.
