Faculty Mentored Student-Research Experiences during Academic Year

This program provides part-time mentored research opportunities for undergraduate students during the academic year (and summer) at their home institution under the guidance of KBRIN-supported research faculty.

From Matthew Woeste, NKU, Biology, Junior:
“Thank you for your support at our institution. NKU is extremely cooperative in undergraduate research and creativity. A KBRIN stipend has allowed me to stimulate my learning experience even more!”
