STEM SRS Application Process
In the interest of equal access to all students, many, but not all, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) faculty invite students interested in working with them to submit an early request form online between November 1, 2019 and December 1, 2019.
On this form, students interested in STEM area research will list their top 3 preferred mentors, chosen from a list of STEM faculty and their Summer Research Project Descriptions. Once the deadline is closed, faculty mentors will match as many students with faculty as possible. These matching results will be completed before the winter break and prior to the SRS Faculty application deadline of January 31, 2020. To be clear ALL FACULTY MENTORS, regardless of whether they are participating in the early STEM process, MUST submit an application in the regular SRS process.
All faculty mentors who submit an early SRS Faculty application and may nominate up to two students for their summer research projects.
While the faculty mentor submits the STEM Faculty application for student stipends, the student must submit the Summer Opportunities Request form (link below). If SRS is the ONLY program you are applying to for support, you will only need to request a stipend ($375 per week for up to 10 weeks).
