What is BURST?

This information can be found at


The CSUF BURST program, funded by the Office of the Provost, has three overarching goals:

1) to increase the number of students involved in the high-impact practice of faculty-mentored research,

2) to provide opportunities for students to explore and develop their research interests 

3) to build a community of student researchers


The program aims to accomplish this through three types of activities:

1)     BURST COMMUNICATIONS:  The BURST Facebook Page ( provides students with current information on upcoming events and research and job opportunities, and highlights a different CSUF undergraduate research student each week.


2)     BURST EVENTS provide tools to help students get to know potential faculty mentors, get involved in faculty-mentored research, and learn the culture of communicating biology research.


3)     The BURST scholar program supports advanced CSUF Biological Science majors as they conduct independent research with a faculty mentor, culminating with at least one significant oral or written presentation.
