The First-Year and Transfer Student Research Experience (FYRE) program connects high-achieving first-year and transfer students with faculty mentors to work together on research or a creative inquiry project. It aims to facilitate meaningful faculty mentorship with these students while providing early exposure to research, scholarship, and creative inquiry in any discipline

Students are matched with a faculty project and will work 5 hours per week (80 hours total) during the semester. They will gain important research experience while building a professional connection with their faculty mentor. Students and faculty are paid for their work and mentorship. Students and faculty apply separately.
