SoReMo Accepting Applications for Student Fellows

The Socially Responsible Modeling, Computation, and Design (SoReMo) initiative invites applications for Fall 2022 research fellowships. All Illinois Tech students are eligible to apply by proposing a research project. Selected Fellows receive financial support to work on the project for one semester. Fellowships amounts typically start at $2,000, but may be up to $3,000 (for example, if combined with other sources, such as Federal Work Study support).

SoReMo Fellows are key active participants in the Forum: a place for presenting issues, challenges, solutions, roadblocks, innovative ideas, that come out of Fellows’ projects to a broad, multidisciplinary audience of students, faculty, and external advisors. They will peer review other Fellows’ work. They will incorporate feedback from community stakeholders and subject matter experts from industry, academia, and government. During the process, Fellows will gain communications training, interdisciplinary experience, and contacts across campus and the community.
