Center for Undergraduate Research and Fellowships
The Center for Undergraduate Research and Fellowships (CURF) is a unique resource that links students with research opportunities throughout the entire University. CURF links students with research opportunities throughout the University.
CURF advisors assist undergraduates interested in research with finding faculty mentors and opportunities for involvement. In addition, CURF helps those interested in post-graduate fellowships to develop competitive applications and proposals and provides information and assistance for undergraduates applying for funding for research and research-related activities.
The value of research is increased when the results can be shared. Both in collaboration with professors and independently, Penn students regularly publish their research results and present their findings at professional conferences throughout the country and world.

• CUREJ - College Undergraduate Research Electronic Journal
• Penn Bioethics Journal
• Penn History Review
• Sound Politicks
• The Journal of International Relations
