Project Description: 

The Undergraduate Research Fellows program with the School for the Future of Innovation in Society (SFIS) is designed to give undergraduate students a chance to engage in research projects on science & society topics, working closely with SFIS faculty mentors.The program gives students the opportunity to develop critical skills in how to gather reliable data, how to analyze this information, and how to present your findings to others in a clear and compelling way. These skills can prove very useful in the workplace.

Students participating n the program can choose to receive a stipend ($1200 per semester) or to receive research credit (2 credits per semester). Students will also be expected to spend 5-7 hours per week as a Research Fellow, which includes attending a weekly meeting with the faculty mentor and a series of Research Masterclasses. At the end of the semester, students will be expected to present a research poster at a symposium.
