Case Western Reserve University offers research opportunities for minority undergraduate students in science and engineering. Students spend ten weeks working in a research laboratory or research program under the direction of a faculty member. They also attend lectures by science and engineering faculty and give poster presentations at the end of the program. The Summer Undergraduate Research Program includes a stipend, plus support for housing, meals, travel, and supplies.
The 2010 recipients included students from Fisk University, Swarthmore College and University of Puerto Rico. The students had research opportunities in the Center for Chemical Dynamics, Physiology and Biophysics, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Great Lakes Energy Institute.
The ACES program will run from May 29 through August 3, 2012. This is a hands-on, intensive program that seeks to attract minority undergraduate students to pursue research careers in science and engineering. Students are assigned a faculty mentor with related research interests. Students learn new skills and gain valuable experience by contributing to ongoing research activities.
