The Summer Research Intensive program provides funding to faculty to support research and scholarly productivity. Our office matches funding to hire undergraduate research assistants and provides these students with specialized training in research methods, oral and written presentation techniques, and other professional development skills.
“I was surprised how much progress was made during the summer. My student solved a lot of computational issues on his own.”
“[My students] were both excellent. [One] assumed a leadership role over certain logistical pieces of the project which was most valuable. [The other] participated extremely diligently and actually did more of the data work than any other project member. I look forward to working with both on future presentations and publications out of the data.”
From students:“This project has reaffirmed my desires to pursue an MD/PhD. . . [and] has helped me to become more confident in my love for research.”
“It has made me question (in a good way) if I'd rather pursue criminal justice research over psychology research.”
Thank you to the Provost, SMU Libraries, Moody School, and the Engaged Learning Undergraduate Research Steering Team for their support.
