Now Available: Fall 2014 Research Fellowship Application!
Undergraduate students may now apply for MemphiSTEM Undergraduate Research Fellowships
for Fall 2014. Fellowships are for $500 for the semester (50 hours of research).
Students must identify a research project and faculty advisor in order to be considered
for an award. Please remember that the examples below are PAST research projects.
Students should talk to faculty members in their major directly to determine what
opportunities may be available this semester. In addition, all Fall 2014 applicants
must have some level of matching financial support from the faculty advisor in order
to be considered for an award. Applicants must ask the faculty advisor to submit a short statement of support to
Dr. Ivey (email@example.com) via email that indicates the title of the project and the level of funding that
they will provide. Applications will be accepted until September 12, 2014 for the Fall 2014 semester.

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