HOW TO COLLABORATE:
- Faculty interested in collaborating with UBMS should contact the program office (firstname.lastname@example.org) to schedule a brief phone call or meeting with the program Director. This meeting should be scheduled at least two months in advance of submission, however no meetings will be scheduled during the UBMS summer program, which is traditionally held mid-June through late-July. At this meeting, be prepared to bring ideas for collaboration and/or brainstorm innovative methods to partner with UBMS
PAST EXAMPLES OF COLLABORATION:
- ECOS faculty have hosted and mentored UBMS students for the summer research experience portion of the Summer STEM Institute. Some have also included funding for graduate student mentors and research materials into their NSF grants.
