This program is intended to support promising undergraduates in the sciences or engineering, in a mentored research project that introduces the student to academic research.The structure of the research plan should involve a mentored research experience, wherein the undergraduate student is responsible for addressing an appropriate self-contained question relevant to the mentor’s larger ongoing study.
I am thrilled to have the opportunity to mentor such wonderful undergraduate students! We are so thankful to the Mindlin Foundation for recognizing their potential, and for the value of their research contributions.
