ReNUWIt Research Scholars Program
The ReNUWIt Research Scholars (RRS) program engages undergraduate and non-thesis Masters students in ReNUWIt faculty’s research labs, under the mentorship of ReNUWIt post-docs and grad students. Scholars also participate in professional development workshops via videoconference, meet peers across ReNUWIt’s four campuses, and gain access to ReNUWIt’s researchers and industry partners.
ReNUWIt is now accepting applications for the inaugural 2018 RRS Program. We will select up to 12 participants.
