Student Information

MASI is open to all undergraduate students enrolled in a baccalaureate degree program through the College of Agriculture. Students with a GPA of at least 3.0 will be given preference for acceptance into the program and funding.

MASI participants will receive funding for the program and are expected to engage in research activities for approximately 40 hours per week. The majority of the time should be spent in a lab or performing field work.  Students are required to attend weekly science communication workshops and MASI events.  Therefore, students are not allowed to enroll in on-campus courses during the program.   Students are responsible for securing their own housing.

Students should identify a faculty member to work with and provide the name of the project on their application. Students having difficulties identifying a faculty mentor should contact Mary Helen Halsema ( with their research interests. 

The deadline for applications is February 28, 2019.
