Are you a VCSU student who might enjoy working with a faculty mentor on a research or artistry project?
The SOAR program aim is to incentivize your bold ideas through a short term paid research position at VCSU.
Some ideas can be gleaned from past project titles: “No REZervations: Creating Navajo Pop Art,” “Feeding Habits of Smallmouth Bass in the Sheyenne River,” “Uncovering the Silent Voices of the Past: A History of the Fort Totten Boarding School,” “Entransed: The making of a transnational woman”, “Developing and testing lead and mercury biosensors; a synthetic biology approach,” or “The Internet of Pi.”
In any of these examples you’ll find that students worked with a faculty member of their choosing to develop and submit a short proposal to the SOAR Council for approval that resulted in an unforgettably impactful research experience.
Students are paid $1,000 for work that can span one or two semesters, and/or the summertime.
Project proposals are due in on Monday, May 3, 2021 by 11 pm.
Members of the SOAR Council are happy to entertain any questions you might have.
