Campus Resources for Students
The BGSU McNair Program is designed as a two-year experience; therefore sophomore students (rising juniors) in good academic standing and who wish to engage in undergraduate research are strongly encouraged to apply. Junior students (rising seniors) will be considered and are also encouraged to apply, but must not be graduating for at least one more academic year. Additionally, students with a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) focus are strongly encouraged to consider the McNair Program.
The goal of the Academic Investment in Math and Science (AIMS) program is to increase the number of women and students of color who graduate from BGSU with majors in mathematics, computer and natural sciences. AIMS students have the unique opportunity to strengthen their academic skills and to develop the professional and leadership traits required for advanced/terminal/graduate degrees in mathematics and the sciences as future researchers and teachers (elementary, secondary, and college level). Yearly scholarships of $1500 + yearly incremental increases for those in Good Standing. Additional financial assistance may be available for eligible participants.
As a SETGO Summer Researcher at BGSU you will gain hands-on research experience in a cutting edge field, a $3,500 stipend, and a competitive advantage - all while having fun! For 10 weeks during the summer, students immersed in the SSR experience work side-by-side with graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and faculty who serve as role models and mentors. They discover how modern research is done in an environment that stresses collaboration and multidisciplinary approaches to problem solving. They'll join informal weekly forums in which scientists inside and outside of academia discuss the latest advances in their own research, and making informed career choices - explore mentoring issues, career opportunities in STEM fields, pathways to graduate school, and how to balance work and family responsibilities. The summer experience is capped by a mini-symposium at which participants present a poster on their research project.
