The annual Spring Undergraduate Research Festival is a research poster and presentation forum for students to share their mentored research projects with the broader academic community. It provides an opportunity for students to gain experience communicating their research in new ways, including designing a poster and discussing the project with Festival attendees.
The festival offers poster presentations during 60-minute sessions, as well as 10-minute oral presentations which allow for more creativity in presentation design.
As with the other forums hosted by UR&CI, the Spring Festival is not specific to any discipline; students from all disciplines across the university are invited to apply, and student presenters should prepare to discuss their research with a general audience. The Spring Festival is open to all undergraduate students at Ohio State who are participating in faculty-mentored research, and students can present on projects that are still ongoing – final results are not necessary for participation.
The 2023 Spring Research Festival will take place in-person on Thursday, April 6, in the TDAI Ideation Zone in Pomerene Hall. Exact session times will be provided closer to the event date.
The 2023 Spring Festival application will be open until March 19, 2023.
Gain valuable research skills and grow your network of resources so you feel both inspired and prepared to pursue graduate-level research.
The EmPOWERment Research In Sustainable Energy (RISE) summer program is a 10-week intensive experience that provides talented Ohio State undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to work on a research project related to sustainable energy in a supportive environment designed to develop and enhance their research skills.
Students conduct research in the lab of an Ohio State faculty member with the support of an academic mentor and peer mentor. Students also participate in communication and research-skill building activities and enjoy community-building activities with a broader network of summer research program scholars across Ohio State through The Consortium. Students have the opportunity to present their research results at a campus-wide symposium held at the program conclusion.
Students will receive a stipend of $5000 to support their participation over the 10 weeks. Students participate on a full-time basis (40-hours per week).
Current undergraduate students, including current seniors, at Ohio State are eligible to apply.
The Career Accelerator Fund (CAF) provides financial support for College of Arts and Sciences students participating in unpaid or minimally paid internships, undergraduate research, or experiential learning opportunities.
The application deadline for Summer 2023 opportunities is March 31, 2023. The application requires multiple documents, so don’t delay if you want to apply. You can learn more on the CAF website.
The Diabetes Institute and Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine at Ohio University will host the Diabetes Institute Summer Interprofessional Research Experience (DISIRE) Program sponsored by The National Institutes of Health during the from June 5, 2023 to July 28, 2023.
Application Deadline: March 20, 2023
The DISIRE program provides a hands-on research experience in the structure of an 8-week paid internship focused on one of a number of various aspects of diabetes research. During the program, participants will learn various aspects of diabetes and perform research with a faculty mentor on a topic of mutual interest. Also, the students will participate in activities crucial to preparation for graduate and/or medical school, including a professional development series. At the end of the summer program, participants present their research at a research symposium to faculty, staff, and summer scholars.
Faculty mentors in the DISIRE program study a wide range of affiliated fields including physiology, molecular biology, chemistry, biomedical engineering, and understanding psychosocial and cognitive factors.
This REU is a ten week hands-on course designed to introduce chemistry, biochemistry and biology students to the research processes and the interdisciplinary nature of contemporary research. Students participate in a mini-symposium on drug discovery, attend seminars given by VICB faculty working across disciplinary lines, and participate in weekly discussions on topics such as ethics.
The 2023 will run from May 30th to August 4th in Nashville, TN. Students receive a stipend of $6000 for the 10-week program, and the program will assist with housing arrangements.
Rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors are encouraged to apply.
The Chemistry Department at the University of North Texas is now accepting applications for itsSummer 2023 NSF-REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) Program.
This program offers interdisciplinary research experiences at the forefront of the chemical sciences. Although our faculty research groups are grounded in “traditional” areas of chemistry (analytical, inorganic, organic, physical, biochemistry), most of their research projects cross boundaries between these areas. A unique aspect of this REU program is that all projects will involve collaboration between two or more research groups, including both experimental and computational researchers.
Participants will connect with career-active researchers at major international chemical companies and tour local companies to learn how chemistry plays a role in the economy. They will also engage in hands-on learning experiences and training in scientific communication and research ethics.
Students who will not have earned their Bachelor’s degree prior to the program end date are eligible to apply.
U.S. citizen or permanent resident.
Up to $2,000 conference travel allowance
Accommodation at UNT for 10 weeks (May 21 – July 29, 2023)
The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics (BMB) at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis invites undergraduate students to apply to its 2023 summer research program.
Students will join a lab that matches their interests where they will complete real-life research at the cutting edge of molecular biochemistry and biophysics. Research areas in the department range from single-molecule spectroscopy to molecular simulations to mitochondrial biochemistry. As well as conducting research, students will also attend workshops that cover various important areas in science, including how to design experiments, how to read papers, scientific communication, and guidance on graduate school applications, etc.
No prior research experience is required. Applicants from diverse backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.
Local travel, housing, a meal plan, and an additional monthly stipend of $2000 will be provided (total of $4000 for the 8-week program). The program will run roughly between June 1st – July 30, 2023. Applicants must have completed their sophomore year before June 2023, and the ideal candidates will be considering applications to graduate school in the fall of 2023.
The program flyer contains more detailed information and application instructions. Applications are due by February 15, 2023.
