First Year and New Transfer Student Research Experience (FYRE) Program, Spring 2023

Funded Research Assistance

Applications due October 17 at 5 PM EST

In Spring 2023, Student Awards, Initiatives, and Research within Research & Scholarship will launch the second iteration of FYRE, a program to support new student researchers interested in joining faculty projects. The First-Year/Transfer Student Research Experience (FYRE) program aims to facilitate meaningful faculty mentorship of first-year and new transfer students while providing early exposure to research in any discipline. Faculty are asked to propose a research project that would benefit from student involvement. Faculty may propose a new project or a project they are already working on as part of their research agendas. If you have a research project that could benefit from first-year (or transfer) student involvement, please consider applying. FYRE is a competitive process open to part-time and full-time faculty in all disciplines, but preference will be given to those who did not receive a FYRE grant last year. Selected students will work 5 hours/week for the Spring semester (January-May) and receive a $1000 stipend. Selected faculty will receive a $500 stipend for their time and mentorship. Student applications for FYRE will be made available in late October; while faculty can encourage students to apply, we are unable to accept faculty requests for specific students this year. It is the responsibility of faculty applicants to clear their participation in FYRE with their AUH (or appropriate supervisor) before applying.

Apply here by October 17 at 5PM: https://forms.office.com/r/3mcJjhX7Vf

Questions can be directed to Meredith Malburne-Wade, PhD, Klebert Feitosa, PhD, and Jared Diener at studentresearch@jmu.edu.
