We are not currently accepting applications. The next application solicitation will be for spring 2019, and the opening of applications will be announced here.

Prospective applicants should read the expectations for student participants before applying.

Once applications are open, to apply, email from your account with a brief cover letter describing your interest in research. Also include:

  • Your full name
  • The titles of the projects you are most interested in
  • A PDF attachment of your UIC “current student academic history” (listing your coursework completed at UIC), as available from*

*Note: The academic history is available for free to current students at any time (instantly); we do not want an official transcript, which is a document that you pay for and which takes 24 hours to receive from the registrar.

We will reply to acknowledge receipt of your application, usually within 24 hours. Decisions will be announced by the start of the second week of the semester.
