The STEM Summer Scholars Institute (STEM SSI) is an eight-week undergraduate research program designed to recruit talented students from IU and Minority Serving Institution (MSI) partner institutions who are interested in pursuing PhDs. During the program, scholars are hosted on the core campuses: Indiana University Bloomington (IUB) and Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI).
Launched in March 2007, the purpose of the STEM SSI program is to:
- facilitate substantive STEM research opportunities for MSI and IU students
- provide increased access for MSI students to IU graduate programs in the STEM disciplines
- encourage collaborative research between MSI and IU faculty in the STEM disciplines
- enrich the academic opportunities of all the institutions through “visiting scholars” programs, faculty and student exchanges and a faculty research institute.
