Contrasting Motivations Among Black Reproductive Professionals: 

Competing Paradigms for Reimagining Liberation

LaShekia’s second year thesis began as an exploration into the Black midwife and doula movement as a source of cultural and political empowerment, yet evolved into a rarely-explored narrative on the struggle for cultural capital among emerging ethnomedical practices, ideas on professionalism, the future of medical education, and the need for reimagining what culturally resonant care means for not only patients, but BIPOC practitioners.

Posted by Tim on February 14, 2022 in Honors Experiences, Research Information and Opportunities, Summer Research

Paid Summer Research!


Are you interested in Indigenous Studies and the Aleutian Islands of Alaska? Do you think it would be exciting and fun to live outside on a remote Aleutian Island for a month? If yes then this may be the summer research opportunity for you.

Our NSF-funded research team is seeking up to 2 students to join us for a mid-May – June 2022 archaeological field season on Agattu Island, Alaska. The work will be archaeological but no experience is necessary, we will train you. This position may be of particular interest to students of Indigenous heritage.

NSF REU Research Funding Information

Posted by Tim on February 7, 2022 in Academics, Research Information and Opportunities, Scholarship Opportunities, Summer Research

The NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program funds a large number of research opportunities for undergraduate students and supports active research participation by undergraduates in any of the areas of research funded by the National Science Foundation. REU projects involve students in meaningful ways in ongoing research programs or in research projects.  This type of summer experience is important if you plan to pursue graduate studies.  It can greatly strengthen your resume.

Each student accepted in an REU program is associated with a specific research project, where they work closely with faculty and other researchers. Students are granted stipends to cover living expenses and, in many cases, are provided assistance with housing and travel. To be eligible, you must be a US citizen or permanent resident.

By using NSF’s web page, Search for an REU Site, you can find opportunities across the U.S., in the subject areas supported by various NSF units. Also, you can search by keywords to identify sites by a particular research topic or with certain features, such as a particular location.

For information and application materials, contact the individual funded sites. NSF does not have application materials and does not select student participants. A contact person and contact information is listed for each site.

If you are interested in applying to an active REU site within SUNY, please review the information and links below. We’ve included an REU site from NY Department of Health’s Wadsworth Center as well.

Summer 2022 REU at the University of Central Florida

Posted by Tim on January 28, 2022 in Academics, Honors Experiences, Research Information and Opportunities, Summer Research

NSF-DoD REU Site: Advanced Technologies for Hypersonic, Propulsive, Energetic, and Reusable Platforms (HYPER) at the University of Central Florida (UCF).

HYPER addresses challenges in aerospace travel and energy production, advancing the fundamental knowledge needed to overcome technical barriers limiting hypersonic flight. The 10-week program will be held this summer from May 22nd – July 30th, 2022. Participants will gain hands-on research training in challenges such as: utilizing advanced manufacturing techniques for high-value components, integrating in-site monitoring of stress-strain evolution, developing novel methods for improved internal cooling and heat transfer effectiveness, and mitigating flutter through advanced rotor dynamic control. Many of these challenges rely on approaches that cut across disciplines and research techniques.

We are actively recruiting a diverse group of participants. These students will:

• Conduct hands-on research guided directly by a faculty mentor and their graduate student(s)

• Interact with a diverse multidisciplinary team of researchers

• Visit the NASA Kennedy Space Center and various aerospace companies

• Participate in professional development workshops

• Gain in-depth training on numerical simulation software ANSYS

• Prepare for graduate school and a research-based career

• Engage with other REU groups located at UCF

Each HYPER REU participant will receive a summer stipend of $5,000, on-campus housing, and a travel allowance to and from Orlando, Florida. To learn more about the program, please visit our website at cater.cecs.ucf.edu/hyper/ or view the HYPER REU flyer.

The application deadline for HYPER is Sunday, March 13th, 2022 at 11:59 PM ET. Prospective participants may apply at cater.cecs.ucf.edu/hyper/apply/.

The organizers of the program are Drs. Ali P. Gordon and Jeffrey L. Kauffman (hyper@ucf.edu). I hope that you will let us know if you have any questions about the HYPER REU program or the University of Central Florida.
