Each year, an elite group of Summer Research Assistants are named Summer Research Fellows. SRFs demonstrate exceptional work ethic, curiosity, independence, and intellectual rigor. SRFs produce work comparable to the quality shown on a professional conference.
Nominated by their faculty mentors, SRFs are selected by the Engaged Learning Faculty Steering Team.
Summer Research Fellows receive
Funding to reimburse expenses related to conference presentations, such as poster printing, registration, and travel
