The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the School of Graduate Studies is delighted to announce that Kirsten Allen, a RISE alum, was recently named an inaugural 2023 QUAD fellow . This scholarship program, in its first year, is designed to build ties among the next generation of scientists and technologists as an initiative of the governments of Australia, India, Japan, and the United States.
The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the School of Graduate Studies is delighted to highlight some recent accomplishments of Research Intensive Summer Experience (RISE) alumni.
Congratulations to the following RISE Scholars:
On Friday, July 22nd, RISE held our Mini-Symposium where our 2022 scholars participated in 5 Minute Presentations. The Mini-Symposium highlighted the scholarship and research of the undergraduate participants of several cooperating summer programs. Rutgers faculty mentors, often assisted by post-doctoral fellows, graduate students, research staff or other undergraduates, guide the summer students. The participants include undergraduates from Rutgers and from institutions across the US and its territories.
We are gearing up to welcome our new cohort of RISE scholars to campus this summer. But first, we're excited to share some recent accomplishments from RISE alumni.
This fall, a number of RISE alumni presented their summer research projects at various national conferences. We're proud to highlight their achievements since their summer experience at Rutgers!
Congrats to Amy and Mickayla for each being recognized with a Pauling Poster Prize at the American Crystallographic Association’s annual meeting! Their posters were a part of the work they conducted during the RISE 2021 Summer Program. This summer Amy was mentored by Stephen K. Burley in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology while Mickayla was mentored by Sagar Khare in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology.
