Program Benefits

Qualified undergraduate students will study and perform research under a faculty mentor at NC State.

The program will:

  1. Introduce students to different aspects of research (planning experiments, managing time, ethical issues, summarizing results, and presentation skills)
  2. Introduce students to mentors that can make a big difference in their future academic development
  3. Support students as they determine if they are truly interested in pursuing a graduate degree that involves research
  4. Enable students to work on projects of interest while gaining cross-cultural experiences
  5. Help students meet distinguished individuals at the University, and make contacts that can last a lifetime
  6. Provide cultural excursions and weekend trips to learn more about life at a U.S. university and U.S. culture
     

Program Highlights

  • Focus on Research
    Participants are paired with faculty mentors whose specialties range from agriculture to engineering, where they conduct research on a small independent project or assist with ongoing research. The program culminates with students presenting at the Undergraduate Research Symposium.
  • Cultural Excursions
    Students will experience American culture and enjoy weekend and evening excursions. The program fee includes field trips to local attractions and events with NC State students. Students reflect on these experiences, resulting in a final participation grade.
  • Room & Board
    Students are housed in Wolf Village, an air-conditioned campus residence. Students have private rooms and share a kitchen and washing machine/dryer with four other people. A partial meal plan ($50) will be provided and library, gym and recreational facilities are also available.
     

Areas of Research

Students should list 2 faculty from the pre-approved list that match your research interests.

GEAR Available Faculty Mentor List 2019 (New faculty will be added as they are available. This list will continue to be updated.)

Students can go to the NC State Department list to obtain more information about the department and look up the faculty on the NC State website.

You can still apply for a professor not on the list, but there is no guarantee that professor is available.

NOTE: NCSU do not allow applicants to contact faculty directly in the beginning. Anyone who breaks the rule will be eliminated from the program automatically. After students are accepted and the Program Coordinator has opened communication, then students can contact faculty.
