ARISE@UM, A Research Immersive Student Experience at the University of Mississippi, is a multi-pronged and multi-phased initiative aimed at improving STEM education and the pipeline of students pursuing STEM degrees in Mississippi. Our first prong and current phase of focus is devoted to providing nurturing summer** research experiences for high school students and community college students (piloting this summer 2017).
If you are a high school student interested or curious about pursuing scientific research, we encourage you to apply. Each year, applications will be accepted from February 1 through March 1, with acceptance decisions made on a rolling basis (by April 1 if not earlier).
**Research experiences are offered currently only in the summer but will become more accessible during the Fall and Spring semesters in the near future.
