In this four part video series we will help walk you through some steps to start your undergraduate research journey, plus provide additional insight and tips on your undergraduate research options and experiences at LSU. 

Each Fall, LSU students who wish to submit an application for a NSF GRF are encouraged to enroll in this workshop series during which you will learn from faculty about the fellowship and how best to craft your application.

Check back in Fall 2024 for information on the next series!
