Now accepting applications for its eighth cohort for summer 2019, the NYU Tandon School of Engineering’s Applied Research Innovations in Science and Engineering (ARISE) program has graduated over 225 high school students. This free program is for academically motivated, current 10th and 11th grade New York City students with a demonstrated interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
This full-time, seven week program includes: a high level, 5-week authentic research experience in participating NYU faculty labs, mentoring in that placement by a graduate or postdoctoral student, a stipend of at least $500 for completing the program, as well as two weeks of workshops, college advisement and other activities geared to preparing ARISE students for the college application process. In the workshops, students will be introduced to the field of scientific ethics, contemporary issues in scientific inquiry, data collection and analysis, research practices, lab safety and more.
With their mentors, ARISE participants will spend the latter five weeks of the program in their labs where they will make practical, substantive contributions to the lab’s research objectives, which span engineering, life sciences, and computer and data sciences. Check out the Research Opportunities section to learn more about the research going on in the more than 28 ARISE labs and the professors who oversee the work.
Students will also receive training in presentation and public speaking skills, in collaboration with ARISE’s partners at Irondale Ensemble Project, and give their research findings at the program’s concluding colloquium (archival page) to NYU faculty and graduate students, their peer ARISE participants, other academic experts, family members and friends.
Through a grant from the Pinkerton Foundation, with additional support from the Depository Trust and Clearing Corporation (DTCC), ARISE is intended to provide an advanced STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) research opportunity to New York City students lacking access to high quality STEM education experiences. Students from demographic groups underrepresented in STEM disciplines and careers, including women, students of color and those from low–income backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply. NYU Tandon‘s ARISE program is a partner of the New York City Science Research Mentoring Consortium, a group of NYC academic, research and cultural institutions providing NYC high school students with mentored, authentic research experiences in STEM.
