About the workshop
Research is all about asking questions and finding answers. It is a great way to gain real-world experience, work closely with faculty members, and build your resume. This interactive workshop is designed to get you thinking about your research interests and teach you how to find and reach out to potential faculty mentors. Let us help you get started on your research path!

One workshop is REQUIRED for ALL Magellan Scholar applicants. Attend any workshop that fits your schedule.
