Undergraduate Research Experience Program (UREP)
Student research at SFS-Qatar is funded through the Qatar National Research Fund's (QNRF) dedicated student research fund - the Undergraduate Research Experience Program (UREP). The UREP promotes “Learning by Doing” and “Hands-On” mentorship activities as effective methods for undergraduate education. In addition to a research-based education, students gain experience with team-based research collaboration with faculty and other undergraduates or research staff in Qatar.
The UREP maximizes faculty-student interaction, and enhances the learning experiences of undergraduate students by encouraging faculty members to integrate students into their ongoing scholarly and professional activities.
