Research Opportunities (STEM)

The Douglass Project encourages undergraduate women to apply for opportunities in research, which include:

Project SUPER
Project SUPER (Science for Undergraduates: A Program for Excellence in Research) is a STEM-focused enrichment program that offers students monthly STEM-related workshops, an introductory scientific research course, a STEM Summer Research Stipend, special STEM travel grants, and exceptional academic support. Find out more information here.

Industry Internships
The Douglass Project maintains relationships with New Jersey companies that seek to employ highly skilled workers from the STEM fields. Douglass Project staff work closely to place students in internships and externships at these companies throughout the summer and academic year.

STEM Summer Stipend
Douglass Residential College provides stipends of up to $3,000 for individuals engaged in a summer STEM research experience. Students do not need a research sponsor to apply for the stipend, but should be actively looking for a faculty sponsor working in the student’s area of interest.  Click here for the application. Application deadline, Friday, April 14, 2017 3pm.

Rodkin Scholars Program
The Rodkin Scholars are a select group of students with high academic potential and other strong indicators for success in scientific research. Rodkin Scholars must be students enrolled in the School of Arts and Sciences. Student researchers benefit from an orientation to labs and faculty, and assistance in obtaining a summer research placement. Applications currently not available.
