Subject: VERSA @ UC San Diego application is open!

Do you want to learn how to make a difference in STEM Education? The VERSA (Virtual Education Research in STEM Academy) @ University of California, San Diego program is looking for undergraduate students who want to conduct research on STEM education at the college level this summer. Our faculty mentors study teaching and learning in a variety of STEM disciplines, including chemistry, biology, astrophysics, engineering, and psychology.

It is a hybrid program: the first and last weeks are in person, while the middle weeks are virtual- meaning you can do research from home! The program is 9 weeks, from June 20-Aug. 19. Each VERSA Fellow will receive a $5,400 stipend and an additional $1,255 allowance for housing and food.

For more information and to apply, please go to: Application deadline is April 15.
