Welcome to our Summer 2020 RISE Remote Scholars!
Although in-person undergraduate research has been suspended due to COVID-19, RISE students will engage in virtual research and a robust virtual enrichment and professional development component.
RISE at Rutgers is a nationally acclaimed summer research program for outstanding undergraduates from diverse backgrounds. Scholars participate in 10 weeks of cutting-edge research in the biological, physical, and social/ behavioral sciences, math, engineering, and exciting interdisciplinary areas under the guidance of carefully matched faculty mentors. A comprehensive professional development component, including GRE preparation, complements the research.
