This paper focuses on describing research experiences for undergraduate students who are interested in pursuing graduate work. A key element to a successful research internship is the faculty-student mentoring alliance. Involving undergraduates in independent research projects can provide students with valuable input in the decision to continue their education or not. The faculty mentor must provide the student with clear expectations, timely feedback about performance, and positive reinforcement and constructive criticism. Involving undergraduates in research can be a fruitful learning and teaching experience.
