Over ten undergraduates from the VA-NC Alliance & FYRE programs joined Chemistry laboratories for a summer research experience.
The First Year Research Experience (FYRE) program is being piloted by the UVA Physics and Chemistry departments this summer. The 7 student participants are first year students from Minority Serving Institutions (MSI) in the Leadership Alliance. This program provides undergraduate
The Virginia-North Carolina Alliance for Minority Participation Summer Research Program provides undergraduate students majoring in a STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) opportunities for Research Internships at the University of Virginia. The program enables students to gain experience in various fields of STEM research. Emphasis is placed on conducting research in a lab setting where well-defined research goals, frequent communication, and significant contributions from multiple investigators are central to the success of a given project. This experience comes in the form of mentored and independent research culminating in a final presentation. The program offers a writing workshop, guest speaker presentations on topics related to STEM, and field trips to local attractions. This is an outstanding opportunity for students considering applying to graduate school.
