The goal of City Tech's undergraduate research program is to ensure that all students have access to undergraduate research opportunities. We are committed to the principle that research is a learning experience leading to deeper understanding of concepts taught in the classroom, through their application to discover new knowledge or solve societal problems. We strive to support:
2018–2019 is City Tech's "Year of Undergraduate Research" (YoUR). To highlight the impact of undergraduate research, students and their research will be showcased. Keep an eye out for posters and other events.
Emerging Scholars Program
The Emerging Scholars Program provides students with an opportunity to apply what was learned in the class room to discover new knowledge, solve real-world problems and develop professionally while working with faculty to advance their scholarly endeavors. The program includes specially designed workshops for students offered by Honors Scholars, the Undergraduate Research Committee and others, preparation of an abstract and participation in the Honors/Emerging Scholars poster session. Participating students must complete online training through Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) within the first six weeks.The Emerging Scholars Program provides a $500 stipend for full-time students (enrolled for 12 or more credits) and a $250 stipend for part-time students (enrolled in 11 or fewer credits) for conducting research with a faculty member. Some funding for student travel to professional conferences to present results is available. Part I of a two-part application is found online, and should be filled out by students who already have a faculty mentor to work with or are looking for one, and are interested in participating in the ESP in Spring 2019.
CUNY Research Scholars Program (CRSP)
The CUNY Research Scholars Program provides funded laboratory experiences for associate degree students over a one-year period. The goal of the program is to encourage undergraduate students enrolled in associate degree programs to participate in authentic research and to increase persistence in STEM disciplines.
Applications accepted in the fall only.
Part I of the two-part application should be completed online once a mentor and project has been identified:
