Student Research Fellows for Summer 2014

Student Research

Student Research

The Student Research Fellowship (SRF) program supports collaborative research projects between faculty and students at Ferris State University. It is intended to increase on-campus summer research, contribute to the professional development of faculty, and provide Ferris students with another mechanism to gain research experience. Student fellows will work full time on a research project with a faculty mentor for a 10 week period over the summer.

Results of their work will be shared with the University community at the SRF Symposium August 22 at 2:00PM in SCI 120. (the Wednesday of Faculty Welcome-back week)

We are grateful to members of the Faculty Research Committee for their careful consideration of the SRF applications. We also greatly appreciate the financial contribution of the the affected Colleges (Deans Kurtz, Durst, and Damari) for their investment in this program.
