Multidisciplinary Undergraduate Research Institute (MURI)

MURI facilitates the creation and support of multidisciplinary research teams consisting of undergraduate students, graduate students, post-docs, senior staff, and faculty. The primary purpose of these teams is to provide undergraduates a unique opportunity to work with mentors on real-world problems to gain research skills that can be applied to their college coursework and future careers.

MURI is funded through a partnership between the Center for Research and Learning and the School of Engineering and Technology.
Poster Session
Students receive a $1,000 (academic year) or $3,200 (summer) research stipend. The mentors will receive up to $2,000 for research supplies or equipment. Half of the student stipend is disbursed mid-project, and the remainder upon successful completion of the project and submission of all research products. Students are expected to work at least 25 h per month (academic year) or 40 h per week (summer). Students accepted to the summer program should not enroll in classes, work part-time, or plan a vacation during the duration of the program.
