Featured Review

Former Intern - Research Assistant

I worked at University of Pennsylvania for less than a year

Pros

Great opportunity for undergrads interested in a variety of fields. There are many different disciplines you can do research in from the humanities to STEM and many other interdisciplinary fields.... Simply reach out to a professor and they may have an opening. There are many scholarship programs for students who attend the University of Pennsylvania and other programs not affiliated with the school.

Cons

Depending on the professor, the project may be heavily self-driven. So make sure that you have a strong interest in the field and communicate expectations with the professor.
