Libraries and Academic Innovation is committed to providing guidance and support to undergraduates pursuing research opportunities. Undergraduate research can be a great complement to academic experience at GW and can prepare students for future opportunities.
Center for Undergraduate Fellowships & Research
The Center for Undergraduate Fellowships & Research provides students with guidance on getting involved with research opportunities, as well as some examples of research projects completed by undergraduates. Available research opportunities are posted on the Research Commons website.
Transcript Notation for Undergraduate Research
The transcript notation program for undergraduate research allows undergraduates to highlight non-credited research experiences on their official GW transcript. The transcript notation recognizes important experiential learning and gives future degree programs and employers a more complete picture of a student’s background and interests. Not all experiences are eligible, so be sure to read through the requirements before submitting an application.
