Are you interested in scientific research, teaching, health sciences, environmental issues, or other related fields? Are you interested in:

  • Succeeding in introductory biology (BIOL 180, 200, 220) and other bioscience courses?
  • Learning, thinking, and writing like a scientist?
  • Joining a diverse community of UW biology students and mentors?
  • Identifying research, scholarship, and training opportunities?

Students who have not yet taken BIOL 180 are encouraged to apply. Accepted students will participate in BIOL 106 during Autumn Quarter (Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3:00-4:20 pm, 3 credits). This course helps learners define and develop skills for success as science students and plan individualized academic and professional pathways.

“We got the sense that the best way was to study to understand it from our own interests as scientists. And that’s what I do now in my other classes–study as a scientist, to learn because of my interests and to put that information into the things I already know.”

“They encouraged us to be so connected, so that all of us could be better than what we were alone. We learned to see people as someone we could learn from, rather than as someone we needed to compete with.”


– BIOL 106 Students


Applications will be accepted until spaces are filled, and spaces are limited.


We look forward to your application!

Dear UW Students,

We are pleased to announce the call for papers for the third annual International Conference of Undergraduate Research (ICUR).

ICUR is a unique, two-day event which connects students from eight universities worldwide via video-conference.  University of Washington students will have the opportunity to share their research and scholarly work with peers from Kyushu University in Japan, Monash University in Australia, Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, and the University of Western Australia.

The conference is an exclusively undergraduate forum designed to showcase the best in undergraduate research from across the globe, and to provide a supportive yet critical environment for talented young scholars.  ICUR is intended to help students:

1) internationalize their university experience by presenting on the world stage
2) understand how to articulate the importance of their research across disciplinary boundaries
3) develop an appreciation of how local specificities or global imperatives shape their research area.

We anticipate diverse contributions to make ICUR 2015 a conference to shift your thinking, expand your network and transform your approach to research.

Abstracts from all disciplines are sought.  The theme of the conference is “Current research issues in your discipline or area”. Students are invited to submit abstracts of 250 words via the online application.

WHAT: International Conference of Undergraduate Research (ICUR)
WHEN: Monday-Tuesday, Sept. 28-29, 2015, 3:00-9:30 PM PDT daily
WHERE: Video-conference studio in UW Odegaard Undergraduate Library

DEADLINE: Friday, May 22, 2015

All current UW undergraduate students are eligible to apply.  UW alumni may apply to participate up to one year after graduation, as long as the work presented was part of the student’s academic or extra-curricular activities while actively pursuing a Bachelor’s degree.

All presentations will be oral talks.  Orientations will be held in September to acquaint all presenters with the videoconference format and technology, and allow presenters to interact with their international colleagues prior to the conference.
