Undergraduate Research Fellows Program (Academic Term)



The academic term undergraduate research program offers research opportunities for ASSIST undergraduate students.  The program is open to any student who ismajoring in an engineering-related field at one of ASSIST’s partnering institutions.

This is a semester-long experience in which students will be partnered with a faculty mentor to conduct a research project related to one of the ASSIST center’s primary focus areas.

Students will receive a $2000 stipend for a four-month project.
