ReMatch+ Summer Program

Re-Match summer undergraduate research 2016 program participants

Program description

ReMatch+ is the culmination of the yearlong ReMatch program. Once mentor-mentee pairings are formalized in January, students may apply to take part in the ReMatch+ Summer Program.

For freshman and sophomore mentees, the program provides an opportunity to carry out a paid graduate-mentored research project over the summer.

For graduate mentor participants, the program offers an opportunity to mentor an undergraduate student through a summer research internship.

Participants in the ReMatch+ and on-campus OURSIP programs come together weekly through the Summer Research Colloquium workshops and social events. SRC participants join a diverse and inclusive community of undergraduate and graduate student researchers from across the University. The program is designed to facilitate and model productive mentor-mentee / adviser-advisee relationships, provide a primer on discipline-specific research methods and approaches, and guide participants in reading scholarly texts and conducting original research. At the end of the summer, SRC undergraduates present their summer research to peers, FSI scholars and affiliated faculty at a mini-academic conference.

    Program dates

    The program runs for nine weeks, from June - August, 2018 (start and end dates to be announced). Participants are expected to be on-campus Monday - Friday and attend the SRC weekly workshops through the end of the program. **Importantly, students appointed in FSI supporting roles through the remainder of August may petition for an earlier end date.
