7. I am an international student interested in research opportunities. What should I do?
Unfortunately, most of the undergraduate summer research programs at UCSB are constrained by federal funding to accept only U.S. citizens or permanent residents. This means that there is no financial support available for international undergraduate students to travel here to study and research at UCSB. International students interested in graduate study should apply to the appropriate academic department. (See FAQ on "I'm looking for a graduate program," below)
