UR-STEM (Undergraduate Research in STEM) is a paid research opportunity for students early in their college careers. Student applicants cannot have participated in a previous paid or for-credit research experience. There are no GPA requirements and students do not have to be a current STEM major. The UR-STEM experience takes place in the summer.
CINSAM will fund students to work over the summer of 2018 on a part-time basis (20 hours/week, 8 weeks, pay $1400) or in the form of a mini-project ($350 at 10 hours/week for 4 weeks – total of 40 hrs). The funds are administered in the form of a stipend, allowing flexibility in scheduling, however the work must be completed in time to participate in the Heather Bullen Summer Celebration of Student Research held towards the beginning of the Fall 2018 semester. In addition, students will be required to attend at least two seminars held during the summer months.
