Summer Research Intensive

Date: June 1, 2022

SMU Faculty members may apply for match-funding for up to two Undergraduate Research Assistants this summer. The students are able to work up to 29 hours per week, and will attend training workshops in research methods and professional development. 

In the 2021 pilot, 42 students supported the work of 27 faculty members. By the end of summer, their work culminated in 8 grant proposals, 7 abstract submissions, and 2 peer-reviewed papers—as well as substantial progress toward proposals and publications. Students also create brief oral presentations and optional reports.

Faculty application deadline is March 21, 2022.
