Undergraduate Research Apprentice Program
URAP creates opportunities for Berkeley undergraduates to work with faculty members on the ground-breaking research projects for which Berkeley is world-renowned. As an apprentice, you can work on faculty research and learn advanced research skills, explore fields that interest you, and find out what it is like to be an academic at the world's premier research institution.

Every year, faculty associated with the Nanoscale Science & Engineering Graduate Group or one of the BNNI research centers offer apprenticeship positions in their lab groups to current undergraduates. Summer positions often include a stipend.

In the 2005-2006 academic year, mechanical engineers Liwei Lin and Rachel Segalman, chemistry researcher Peidong Yang, and economist Brad DeLong welcomed undergraduates into their groups, through the generous sponsorship of COINS.
