Why give to UBRP?

Over the past century, advances in science and technology are largely responsible for the rising standard of living and enhancing the quality of life in this country. Research is key. Undergraduate research in the sciences and engineering prepares students to think critically and to work in teams and evaluate solutions to problems.

UBRP successfully prepares students to go on to graduate or professional school to train to be physicians, allied health professionals, teachers, scientists, engineers and more.  We are building a fund so that UBRP is permanent part of what is offered to students at the University of Arizona.

“I give to UBRP because it is a wonderful program that has offered me a thorough introduction to research and the people behind it. Behind the curtain, there are real people, who cooperate and problem-solve every day. These people have taught me how to focus, improvise, and endure to find answers to the questions that perplex us. The skills and experiences I’ve gained in UBRP will stay with me for the rest of my life, and I would really like to give someone else this opportunity.” – Benjamin Rivera, UBRP & EHS-TRUE Student
