      The Student Research Training (STaRT) Program is designed to promote undergraduate research in first and second year students by providing paid mentored research opportunities. After a brief application and interview process, students are matched with faculty/staff mentors based on mutual research interests. Research Trainees are engaged in year-long research projects, and are encouraged to present their results in the annual Undergraduate Research Day. Research trainees are paid $7.25/hour for up to 140 total work hours per academic year.  Students do not receive credit for being in the STaRT program.
