SOLUR Researcher (Application required)

Our mid-level undergraduate students generally have two to three semesters of research experience before preparing and submitting a SOLUR Researcher application. Additionally, many students have previously enrolled in BIO 289 SOLUR Seminar: Apprentice when they started working in a research lab.

If you have research experience, we encourage you to apply at this level. If accepted, you will receive some financial support. All SOLUR Researchers are required to enroll in BIO 389 SOLUR Seminar: Researcher.

SOLUR Fellow (Application required)

Our highest-level students generally have at least four semesters of research experience before preparing and submitting a SOLUR Fellow application. Additionally, many students have previously enrolled in BIO 289 SOLUR Seminar: Apprentice when they started working in a research lab or have previously been accepted as a SOLUR Researcher (and enrolled in BIO 389 SOLUR Seminar: Researcher).

If you have significant research experience and ready to design  research and experiments in your current lab, we encourage you to apply at this level. If accepted, you will receive some financial support. All SOLUR Fellows are required to enroll in BIO 489 SOLUR Seminar: Fellow.

Apprentices

If you already working in a research lab, you are eligible to enroll in BIO 289 SOLUR Seminar: Apprentice. Please email SOLSUGResearch@asu.edu for more information.
