ReMatch Connects Undergraduate Researchers with Mentors

Undergrads and grad students connect at a ReMatch Meet and Greet event.

ReMatch is a research-mentoring program designed to connect undergraduate students and graduate students, two historically unconnected populations at Princeton, through their shared interest in academic research. ReMatch offers fellowship funding for mentorship connections and joint research projects. Two recent ReMatch Meet and Greet events were well-attended, with over 200 freshman and sophomores participating, along with 45 graduate students. The graduate student mentors come from the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and engineering, representing research opportunities of interest to a wide spectrum of undergraduates.

In November, two Meals for Mentoring dinners will be held, where undergrads will be given another opportunity to meet potential mentors and explore their research interest further. In December and January, the program will offer additional opportunities for students to find a grad mentor through small group meetups, lab tours, and research shadowing experiences. Mentor-mentee pairs will be invited to co-write a proposal to receive funding for a summer research internship in early February.

The ReMatch program is a collaborative initiative of the Office of Undergraduate Research and the Office of the Dean of the Graduate School.
