The BSI Scholar Ambassadors are a team of undergraduates currently involved with research.  Ambassadors are available to meet with students one-on-one for information and advice.  They are also available to meet with student groups/clubs, classes, student fairs, and campus organizations.  As experienced researchers, they can help answer these questions and more.
