The Mcubed Scholars Program connected Mcubed teams with undergraduate students, or Mcubed Scholars, who worked as researchers on cubes during the summers of 2017 and 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 secured placement on a cube team for the summer worked 20 or 40 per week. Students in the program received a $2,000 or $4,000 stipend based on their pre-determined weekly hours worked. (This funding is separate from the Mcubed funding.) Mcubed Scholars attended weekly seminars/brown bag sessions focused on interdisciplinary research topics and participate in UROP's Summer Research Symposium.
Mcubed 3.0 teams which hired Mcubed Scholars received a one-time award of $1,500 to be used towards the cube's research.
