ReMatch+ Summer Program

Alec IsrealiAshley Chang

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 first and second year mentees, the program provides an opportunity to carry out a paid graduate- or postdoctoral-mentored research project over the summer.

For graduate and postdoctoral 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 undergraduates, graduate students and postdoctoral 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 10 - August 9, 2019. Participants are expected to be on-campus Monday - Friday and attend the SRC weekly workshops through the end of the program.

    Stipend and other program support

    • Any internship award you receive from the Office of Undergraduate Research will be considered taxable income (under the IRS non-qualified fellowship and scholarship ruling). If you are an international student, please note that you will have federal taxes automatically withheld from your stipend check. You will be issued a Form 1042-S reporting this income and tax in mid-March next year to determine if a refund will be processed by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). However, Princeton University is unable to guarantee that a full or partial refund will be granted by the IRS. More detailed information can be found on the Finance and Treasury website or you may reach out to the NON-RESIDENT TAX office at NTCR@princeton.edu.
    • ReMatch+ undergraduate participants will be provided on-campus housing and receive a stipend intended to cover meals and help offset miscellaneous expenses (must constitute a full-time commitment of at least 35 hours/week).
    • ReMatch+ graduate and postdoctoral participants will receive a $500 stipend supplement.
    • Research pairs will receive a research allowance (up to $500) to cover expenses such as small equipment and parts, consumable supplies, software, copying costs, books/journals when not available through the University, and travel for data acquisition or field experiments.
    • Upon completion of the project, pairs will be eligible to apply for travel funds to attend a research conference and present their work.
