I know that there are premed honor societies and things of that nature. What I'm wondering is, are there any national organizations based solely on research and providing research experiences for undergrads? Like as a student org?

You mean like the NSF REU program? Or are you talking about an organization that provides research experiences for it's members?

I'm not sure if I really understand your question. Sigma Xi is the research honor society. You need to have published twice in a scientific journal to become a full member, although there is also an associate member status that students can easily qualify for. They have chapters around the country, often at universities. They also have a grant program to help students fund research projects.

The latter. Where you can create a chapter at your school

Yes something like this, but I mean for students at schools where research is almost nonexistent, so they do not have any research experience.

I'm not really aware on any organization quite like that.
