For Students

What does it mean to attend a Research University such as UTRGV?

  • Professors at research universities balance two objectives: conducting their research, and preparing you, the student, to conduct research of your own. You attend a research university for more than a diploma - make the most of your time in a research university by conducting research before you graduate! 
  • You have access to world-class researchers in each classroom and in every college. You can reach out to any of these faculty and become a student research assistant, and participate in real-world research, learning side-by-side from some of the best minds in your field, while earning your degree.
  • Opportunities to present your research are abundant. UTRGV provides many forums for student work on campus, such as the Engaged Scholar Symposium, and encourages students to present at conferences outside of UTRGV.
  • Univeristy leadership provides support for you to succeed in your research. Are you a senior thinking about grad school? Apply for a Presidential Graduate Research Assitantship!
