News Story

Interested in working with a faculty member on scholarly or creative research this summer? Apply by April 30 for the Provost’s Undergraduate Student-Faculty Research Summer Program.

The effect of video games on academic performance. Implications of rising waters. The interaction between a tumor suppressor and pro-apoptotic protein in breast cancer. These are just a few of the topics students and faculty have been researching as part of the Undergraduate Student-Faculty Research Program this year. Have a topic you’re passionate about and interested in working with a faculty member on? The Provost’s Undergraduate Student-Faculty Research Summer Program is happening again this year!

Selected student and faculty pairs will be offered a stipend ($750 for the faculty; $500 for the student) to work together on a summer research project, submit their findings for possible publication, and present at Pace’s research showcase program. At the showcase, the two top pairs (one from each campus) will be awarded $2,000 to be used toward a national conference in their field.

If you’re interested in gaining knowledge and a deeper appreciation for your academic field, working one-on-one with a professor and gaining hands-on experience, strengthening your research, critical thinking, analytical, and writing skills, and building your resume, apply by April 30 for the program.

To apply, contact Jonathan Hooker, program coordinator for the Division for Student Success at or (212) 346-1962.
