The Summer CI & UR Program offers Clemson undergraduate students the opportunity to engage in research for 10 weeks over the summer under the guidance of a faculty mentor. To apply for this competitive award, students must be nominated by mentors and then are asked to complete an application. Student recipients of the Summer CI & UR award receive a stipend for their summer work. In 2019, 66 students participated in the Summer CI & UR program under the guidance of 36 faculty and four graduate student mentors. These students worked in 13 departments from five of Clemson’s academic colleges. Their research varies from the bioinformatics of cancer to designing medical devices for developing countries to investigating the stress, burnout rates and resilience in nurses.
