The SRI@FMHI is a ten week summer program designed for students interested in building their research skills within the context of mental health to help them prepare for a Senior Thesis and/or graduate school.
The SRI@FMHI consists of four components: an independent research project conducted with guidance from a distinguished faculty mentor; research seminars; professional development seminars; and skill-building workshops. The research seminars will complement the research that students are conducting with their faculty mentors. Throughout the ten week period, students will work intensively with faculty mentors on their research projects. In addition, students will gain experience with research ethics, IRB practices, and will participate in a community rotation to gain experience with mental health services in an area related to their research project.
Students will be required to write a research report describing their research project, present the report at a Research Symposium and Poster Session, and submit the completed paper for consideration at an Undergraduate Research Conference or Symposium. Because of the intensity of the summer program, students must participate on a full-time basis and may not be employed or attend other classes during the ten-week program.
All students who are accepted for the program will receive the following benefits as part of the REU:
- $4,000 research stipend
- $400 to support travel expenses, as needed
- Research project support funding
Students are responsible for paying for the cost of housing and food. On-campus housing is available on the USF campus.
Application due in early March. Refer to website for date.
