Undergraduate research (UR) is of great national interest, influenced both by the traditional role of the research apprenticeship in scientists' education and by growing interest in development of thinking skills important for science literacy. The number of UR students nationwide is unknown, but the Boyer Commission on Educating Undergraduates in the Research University estimates that one-fifth of science and engineering students at research universities engage in UR. UR programs sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) may support some 14,000 students per year. Public and private foundations invest substantially in UR, supporting students through both targeted UR programs and grants to individual investigators. National organizations promote UR experiences through student fellowships, conferences, publications, expert advice, and other resources.
