The Stevens, Office of Innovation & Entrepreneurship, (OIE) is now seeking participants for the 2014 Innovation & Entrepreneurship (I&E) Summer Scholars Research Program. In this program, undergraduate students engage in research, innovative design, and/or business projects for a period of ten weeks. The work must be conducted on campus under the active supervision of a Stevens faculty member or a member of the research/scientific staff. The program provides a stipend of $3,500 and housing assistance to students who live 25 miles away (selection rate is approximately 50%) in I&E projects during the summer months. Students will have the opportunity to continue to work on their projects during the following school year if warranted by the faculty advisor (funding is not guaranteed through the program). The process is as follows:

Review program guidelines for eligibility requirements and list of available topics/projects (areas of work) at the website. (We encourage students to identify a topic/project on which they prefer to work). See I&E Summer Scholarship Guidelines.

Consult a faculty advisor as to the scope and suitability of the topic/project you may wish to undertake while performing university research. The student should also provide the faculty member with a copy of their resume.
