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.
Undergraduate Research Fellows Program
During the Summer program, CAChE Fellows will participate in 10-week paid research fellowship, at either the MMC or BBC campuses of FIU. The summer stipend will be $5,000 for successful completion of the 10-week program. CAChE Fellows will be housed on campus, if needed, and are expected to spend 40 hours per week pursuing their assigned project. In addition, CAChE Fellows will attend cohort sessions with other undergraduate researchers where they will learn professional skills, practice poster and oral presentations, and engage with panels of STEM professionals from a number of different career paths. CAChE Fellows will present their results in a poster session at the annual CREST CAChE Symposium at the end of the summer and are encouraged to also present at a relevant national scientific conference. Applications must be received by April 15, 2017. Successful applicants will be notified no later than April 30, 2017.
