BW URCS Ambassadors Program

The URCS Ambassadors Program was created to help promote undergraduate research. The URCS office has several programs that support undergraduate research, such as the FSC Courses, Presentation Awards, and the Summer Scholars Program. The role of the URCS Ambassador is to educate BW students of the importance of undergraduate research and to help publicize the URCS programs. The Ambassadors also serve as a liaison between the URCS office, academic departments and students.
