City Tech’s Spring 2024 Emerging Scholars Program

February 23 All day


The Emerging Scholars Program (ESP) provides a $500 stipend for full-time students (enrolled for 12 or more credits) and a $250 stipend for part-time students (enrolled for 11 or fewer credits) for conducting research with a faculty member. If there is a student that you would like to work with, please provide them with this information and encourage them to apply. This is an opportunity to advance your own scholarship while providing valuable experience to a promising student. All participating faculty receive a certificate of appreciation. 

Note for Research Projects Engaging Freshman Students 

Faculty mentors who engage in a research project with any incoming freshman student (regardless of major) will receive a stipend of $500 (for each freshman student mentored).  Students will receive $500 (and may receive an additional $300 upon competition of CITI certification and attending workshops, if they have not previously received a stipend from the JLM RISE Program). This opportunity is supported by the Robin Hood Foundation. We welcome part-time and full-time faculty to consider mentoring an incoming first year student in a research project this semester. Group projects with a few first-year students are welcomed, since students can get a sense of belonging to a community.  

Please note that the Emerging Scholars Program is open to ALL students (students from all academic levels are welcome to apply), but compensation for mentors only applies to mentoring first year freshman students.
