How to Apply

The application and matching process occurs in the fall semester (late October to early November) and research placements occur in the spring semester (January - April). All University Honors students are eligible to apply; first- and second-year students in particular are encouraged to apply.

Students may apply to no more than five projects. A separate application must be submitted for each one. RaMP applications are competitive, and each student can only commit to one lab. Once you commit to a mentor's offer, the matching process is complete.
