The Mcubed Scholars Program connects Mcubed 3.0 teams with undergraduate students, or Mcubed Scholars, who work as researchers on cubes during the summer of 2019. The program is a partnership between Mcubed, the U-M Office of Research (UMOR), and the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP).
Undergraduate students who are accepted into the Mcubed Scholars Program and secure placement on a cube team for the summer will work 20 or 40 hours per week from May 28th-August 2nd. Students in the program will receive a $2,000 or $4,000 stipend based on their pre-determined weekly hours worked. (This funding is separate from the Mcubed 3.0 funding.) Mcubed Scholars will also attend weekly seminars/brown bag sessions focused on interdisciplinary research topics and participate in UROP's Summer Research Symposium.
Mcubed 3.0 teams that hire an Mcubed Scholar will receive a one-time award of $1,500 to be used towards the cube's research. (Please Note: cubes may hire up to three Scholars for the summer. However, there is a limit of one $1,500 award per cube team.)
