STAR Scholar Presenting Research Findings

STAR Research

The STAR (Students Tackling Advanced Research) Scholars Program allows first-year students to participate in faculty-mentored research, scholarship or creative work during the summer after their freshman year. Students across the university are invited to apply for the program. Participants research topics relevant to their active field of study. LeBow students in the past have worked on various topics from protecting your cellular devices with antivirus software to trends in CEO turnover rates within Fortune 500 companies. STAR Scholars work full-time during the summer term while living on campus and earning a stipend.

This is a great opportunity for freshmen students to get to know faculty, explore a major in a particular field and gain practical skills and valuable research experience.
