The H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE) offers the ISyE Summer Undergraduate Research Scholars Program, a 10-week summer program during which talented undergraduate students conduct full-time independent research under the direction of an ISyE faculty mentor. The Summer Undergraduate Research Program provides an opportunity for students, particularly those from underrepresented groups in this field, to develop research skills and build their professional networks with faculty from the top-ranked industrial engineering program in the US.
IE-PURA provides a salary stipend to ISyE undergraduate students who are conducting research with an ISyE faculty member. The stipend amount is $1500 in the fall or spring semester. Both faculty members and students can initiate research projects, but the award proposal must be written by the student, and the student must apply by the established deadline for the semester in which the funds are requested. Funds are competitively awarded. Please read all rules, eligibility requirements, and application procedures before applying.
