"I think the program is a great way to prepare young scholars for the competition that will come to face them should they continue on to graduate school. The existence of such an office recognizes the importance of the undergraduate contribution to academia, and for this I am truly grateful."

"I was privileged enough to go to a selective social entrepreneurship conference at Northwestern University to present Heya, my student organization, thanks to a research grant awarded to me by the Undergraduate Research Program. Travelling to Chicago for the Global Engagement Summit was definitely one of the highlights of my undergraduate career. Meeting and sharing ideas with social entrepreneurs from all over the world made me realize just how limitless the possibilities are for a country with critical thinkers and innovators. Because of this opportunity, the invaluable lectures, workshops and trainings I received will continue to help me grow as an entrepreneur and Heya as nationwide student initiative."

"The Undergraduate Research Program has been a big step in AUCs quality of education as well as being a tread to higher and richer education both for the student for the AUC community as a whole. The program gave a chance for undergraduate students in different fields to expand their knowledge by conducting research in their fields. It also have encouraged many students to start joining international conferences and competing in challenging competitions. Furthermore, the Undergraduate Research Program have helped my take an opportunity this summer that might change will enviably change my educational excellence. I am sure that his program will thrive in AUC, as there are many potential student researchers willing to take the challenge and make a contribution to their fields. Thus it is evident that such a program will certainly be a great asset to AUC undergraduate students and to the AUC community as a whole."
