Undergraduate Research Fellows Program

The CREST CAChE undergraduate research fellows (CAChE Fellows) program provides an opportunity for undergraduate students to gain first-hand research experience working with faculty and graduate students associated with the CAChE project. In addition, CAChE Fellows will be enrolled in the CREST Research Internship (for zero credit at no cost) so they can list their research experience on their resume. Fellows can perform research during the academic year or during the summer session.

For the Fall and Spring semesters, students will conduct research with CAChE faculty and graduate students, including both field and lab studies, at either FIU's MMC or FIU's BBC campus. CAChE Fellows can participate for up to 10 hours per week at an hourly rate of $10/hr and can also enroll as a research intern (for 0-6 credits). Applications will be accepted at any time (see below).


  • Eligibility


    Applications will be accepted from undergraduate students in any discipline/major related to CREST CAChE's research areas. Potential CAChE Fellows must be U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, or permanent residents of the United States, should have completed at least two semesters of coursework in CAChE­related topics, and must plan to be full time students for at least two consecutive semesters after the summer program (eg., Fall 2017 and Spring 2018).
