ARISE@UM, A Research Immersive STEM 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 research experiences (typically in the summer) for high school students and community college students, as well as their teachers on a case-by-case basis (teachers should email us).
The 2023 ARISE@UM online application is live!!
The deadline to apply will be March 24th. You can also apply via the “Online Application” link under the “Apply” tab above. Read the directions carefully: you will be able to download a PDF version of the application to REVIEW before you formally apply ONLINE. Only ONLINE (not pdf) applications will be accepted.
Interested applicants should prepare by starting to ask 2 teachers for a short letter of recommendation and getting a copy (unofficial is okay for now) of their school transcript. Questions? Contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We thank the C Spire Foundation for their continued and generous support of the ARISE program!
