Share your experience about undergraduate research
We are inviting current and former students and mentors to share their experiences about undergraduate research. We are seeking short (~200 words), first-person “Vignettes” to include in our forthcoming books, Success in Navigating Your Student Research Experience and Success Mentoring Your Student Researchers, both of which will be published in 2022 by Springer as part of their SpringerBriefs in Education series. The books are focused on undergraduate research experiences (including internships) in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine (STEMM).
