Description:

The Freshman Research Initiative (FRI) at the University of Texas at Austin allows undergraduates the rather exciting opportunity to advance academically "while doing cutting-edge, original, publishable research" in a variety of fields. This website provides information about the FRI and how students can get involved, and for more casual users, there are a range of resources worth a look. In the Outreach area, visitors can learn how to take advantage of the FRI's cumulative wisdom through mentorship programs, science fairs, and so on. Moving on, the Sponsors and Collaborators area contains information about the FRI's partnerships with organizations such as the National Science Foundation and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. As a whole, the site is a great resource for other academic institutions seeking to emulate the success of the FRI.
