NJIT undergraduate students interested in a summer research opportunity are encouraged to apply for a limited number of summer research awards. Any current NJIT student who will be an undergraduate in the fall semester 2012 may apply. The program runs from May 21 to July 27, 2012. The student award amount is $2,800.
