The Dean of the College is pleased to announce the return of Research+ for summer 2017. Research+ provides co-curricular programming for a select group of students in all disciplines who wish to strengthen their understanding of research both within and beyond traditional settings. During the six-week program, students will participate in a weekly series of events, including lectures, discussions, and workshops designed to complement their practical research experience by introducing key issues related to research presentations and career paths. As a result, Research+ participants will be better positioned to achieve their personal, professional and academic goals whether they plan to pursue an advanced degree or other post-graduate training in the US or abroad. Successful applicants will be considered for NYU housing stipends for Summer Session One (Monday, May 22–Sunday, July 2, 2017). Preference for housing stipends will be given to successful applicants with demonstrated financial need. Students receiving housing stipends who will continue working on their project in NYC through Summer Session Two will be eligible for extended housing, upon email request to Dean Joel Ward. Any student receiving an extended housing stipend will be required to present their work at the Summer Diversity Research Conference in July (information to register and website forthcoming).

To be eligible, prospective participants must:

  1. Be a CAS student from any discipline undertaking a research project in New York City in summer 2017;
    • Please note that students planning to do research elsewhere but who will be doing full-time preliminary research in NYC during Summer Session One are also eligible and encouraged to apply.
  2. Meet all the eligibility requirements for the DURF program and submit a DURF grant application for summer 2017 (Individual, Team or FAST Grant);
  3. Submit a résumé and a 250 word personal statement articulating why this opportunity will advance your research goals and/or how this program will benefit your current and future academic goals.

Note: Research+ application materials are submitted as a part of applicants’ DURF proposal. Research+ application deadline is the same as the DURF deadline: November 4, February 10, March 31

Research+ Information Sessions: A series of Research+ information sessions will be held in March. These sessions will focus on the application process, eligibility requirements, questions about housing, programming, etc.

Monday, March 6
