Research Ambassadors

Duke University Research Ambassadors

Administered jointly by the URS Office and the Duke Undergraduate Research Society, the Research Ambassadors are an experienced group of juniors and seniors serving as peer advisors for underclassmen looking to get involved in research at Duke. Ambassadors provide that special student perspective and inside advice on getting started, finding a mentor, making the most of a research experience, and finding support for research.
