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.
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). Find us on our social media accounts (arise_um).
We thank CSPIRE and the Kappa Alpha Order at Ole Miss for their generous support of the ARISE program, making it possible for the students of the 2018 to participate!
