For many students, undergraduate research is their first experience working on real-world problems that may provide widespread impact and help people in the future. Research is a chance for students to apply what they've learned in class to the real world, to venture boldly beyond the maps of the known. Not to mention that undergraduate research experience is now necessary rather than an added bonus when applying to graduate school, industrial R&D jobs, and numerous other career paths. However, there are many social and financial barriers that make it difficult for an undergraduate student to locate and get accepted into university research positions. Perch aims to reduce barriers to undergraduate research. We plan to achieve this through an online platform that centralizes communication between research faculty and students, as well as a standardized system of training and certifying research skills.
