The MemphiSTEM project encourages undergraduate students to participate in research.
Several opportunities are available for paid research fellowships both through the
MemphiSTEM project and affiliated projects. For MemphiSTEM funds, students are encouraged
to talk with faculty members in their home department, as well as with faculty members
from other STEM departments, to determine if there are ongoing research projects that
might be of interest. Students should then complete the MemphiSTEM undergraduate research

Research Fellowships were previously funded through MemphiSTEM. These are examples
of the wide variety of STEM research conducted on campus. Please contact faculty
in your major to determine current research project opportunities.
Other Opportunities for Research Experience
There are a number of alternate ways undergraduate students may participate in STEM
research at the UofM. Students may approach STEM faculty with research grants who
may be seeking undergraduate researchers. To determine who has research grants, talk
to STEM advisors or faculty working in fields that interest you. You may schedule
an appointment with STEM advisor, Ms. Regina Hairston (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you
wish to discuss research opportunities for undergraduates at the UofM.
There are also opportunities outside the UofM. Check out the following links:

Students in any field of engineering or the hard sciences may apply to the program,
not just engineering students.
