Summer Research Opportunities

ORSP maintains information on summer research opportunities for undergraduates. CLICK HERE for a current listing, organized by discipline. Several sites allow customized searches and some have common applications. See links below for three recommended sites. Click on the tabs at the bottom of the page for descriptions of highlighted programs that may be of particular interest for Kean undergraduates.

The Big Ten Academic Alliance Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP) offers a common application to programs at Big Ten universities including Rutgers, the University of Maryland, Pennsylvania State, and Ohio State. If you are an enrolled undergraduate student with an interest in pursuing a Ph.D., have a GPA of 3.0 or higher, are a citizen or permanent resident, and have completed at least two semesters, you can apply to a variety of summer research opportunities using a single online application. All expenses paid plus a stipend. Housing and transportation included.

The National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program supports active research participation by undergraduate students in any of the areas of research funded by the National Science Foundation. REU projects involve students in meaningful ways in ongoing research programs or in research projects specifically designed for the REU program. In addition to science, disciplines supported by NSF include Psychology, Sociology, Political Science and Economics.

Deadline: January 4, 2017

Program Description:  This program is of special interest to you if you’re from computer science (CS), pure and applied mathematics, and physics, and we also welcome applicants from chemistry, quantitative biology, and social science. We aim to build your capacity for computational and mathematical modeling, and train you within a group who will support each other in building a wide range of skills. The program will mostly be one-on-one work with your SFI faculty or postdoctoral mentor working on an individual research project that will be crafted by you and your mentor. The first two weeks of the program we will spend some time doing tutorials to catch us all up to speed on some technical and practical skills. During the tutorials we will learn multiple programming languages, go over key mathematical concepts, and even more importantly learn the practical skills of what it takes to be a scientist, like how to give a talk, write a science research paper, write a grant proposal, and apply to graduate school.

Eligibility: Undergraduate students enrolled in a degree program (part- or full-time) leading to a bachelor’s degree. Strong mathematical skills and experience with a programming language are favorably considered. Students from all backgrounds in the physical, natural, and social sciences are invited to participate. Applicants are welcome from any country. International students will need to be sponsored on an F-1 visa by their home institution. Women and minority students are encouraged to apply.
