Dear Undergraduate Students,

My name is Toby Le and I am the coordinator of the MHRE Research Pitch Competition (2022-23). The vision behind creating this competition is to help undergraduate students foster their individual creativity in research. More than just a competition, this is an opportunity for you to explore the innovative aspects of research, which is mainly a reiterative process of acquiring and integrating knowledge into new perspectives. For many of you, this will be a huge milestone in your academic journey as it is a very new experience of unique challenges and learning curves. My advice to you is be resourceful and seek mentorship from others. In addition to the resources identified below, I highly recommend that you complete the Google survey below to receive update emails from me concerning workshops and resources. On top of that, I  highly encourage you all to expand your network and seek expertise from postgraduate students. Do not be shy – ask for mentorship (See Competition Guidelines)! Likewise, be sure to email me if you have any questions/comments or need guidance. Always one email away:


Toby Le
