As a part of the collaborative MSEIP grant with BMCC (funded by the Department of Education) we have funds in the City Tech budget to support undergraduate student research projects to be conducted over the summer.
We have $42000 in the City Tech budget to recruit 28 students for summer research projects, along with their faculty mentors.
Each faculty mentor is expected to develop appropriate undergraduate research projects and can advise up to 2 students. The faculty can recruit the students directly but if they need help recruiting students, they can contact me.
Each student researcher will receive $1000 stipend upon successful completion of the summer research project, which will involve giving a short presentation at a local conference (either at City Tech or BMCC). Each participating faculty mentor will receive $500 in summer salary for each student they supervise.
Faculty and student applications are due by April 24. Please let your students know about this summer research opportunity, and if you are interested in advising students, please let me know and we’ll go from there.
Below you will find additional guidelines regarding international students. Please note that interested students must meet the guidelines in either A or B described below.
A. US citizens or Green Card holders (permanent residents) are eligible to receive a student stipend.
B. For non-US Citizens, additional information about eligibility can be found at the US Department of Education website:
