2022 Undergraduate Research Symposium

About 150 Columbia undergraduates showcased their scholarship at this year's Symposium, with research encompassing STEM, social sciences, and humanities and the arts.


We support Columbia undergraduates and alumni in exploring and applying for internal, national, and international fellowships. We inform students, faculty, and staff about a full range of opportunities and help students determine which programs best meet their intellectual, professional, and personal goals.


Research allows you to build relationships with faculty; explore areas of interest; prepare for a senior thesis; prepare for graduate school; gain new knowledge in a topic of interest; engage in exciting projects during the summer and/or academic year; gain tools that will serve you well as you transition out of college.

Welcome to Undergraduate Research and Fellowships! There are exciting research and fellowship opportunities available to students at every stage of the Columbia experience and beyond.

Though COVID-19 gives rise to unconventional methods, URF Advisors remain committed to supporting students throughout their fellowship and research journeys. URF will continue to offer advising via appointment or virtual walk-in sessions.
