This Spring (2021) STEM Routes partners with several CU faculty members to bring you paid 8-and-16-week research opportunities intended to develop you as a scientist—that means you don’t need previous research or lab experience to apply.


STEM Routes Uplift has been designed with the intent of minimizing the barriers that underrepresented minorities face when engaging with research.


You can apply for a paid research position on up to five of the projects in our database. We encourage you to read through the current projects.  If you don’t see something that interests you now, check back later, as our project pool is being continually updated.


Program Start Date: January 18, 2021


Apply by December 22, 2020
