Research Experiences for Undergraduates - Disciplined-Based Education

The Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) Science and Mathematics Educational Research Collaborative, an interdisciplinary Discipline-Based Education Research (DBER) group, will host a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program this year. Ten accepted students will be involved in mentored-research projects that focus on the theme of Models and Representations in STEM Education and will contribute to publishable research in DBER. Accepted students will participate in a unique “January Jump-Start” session to meet and workvirtually, using video conferencing and online journal club discussions, with project mentors to outline summer projects.  During the 9 week on-site experience at the RIT campus REU students will be involved in cohort-wide research methods workshops, smaller research group meetings, individual mentoring, Professional Development workshops and cohort-building events.  REU students will earn a $5,000 stipend ($500 of which will be earned during the January session) and will be housed, at no expense to the student, in RIT’s state-of-the-art housing complex, Global Village. 

This REU program has an early deadline of November 30th. Visit the program's website to learn more about the program and the application process.
