Congratulations to Grace Oswald (Senior Psychology and Biology Major) for being awarded a National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates (NSF REU). 

For this research internship, Grace will be able to apply her Human Factors research experience from Dr. Nathan Tenhundfeld’s ATTAC lab to conduct research in the Sociomobility REU at Michigan State University.

The National Science Foundation (NSF), one of the largest research funding agencies in the U.S., offers summer research internship opportunities for undergraduates in the STEM fields at universities across the U.S. These internships are highly selective, as they generally consist of 10 undergrads across the country per research project. Students have the opportunity to conduct hands-on research within their area of study under the mentorship of a Principal Investigator (PI); receive a stipend of around $5000 [differs among internships and universities] and housing. Students will also participate in professional development sessions outside of the research and can participate in a regional conference to present their research findings by the end of the summer. 

In addition to research, Grace is an Honors College Prevost Scholar, the Senior Resident Assistant at Frank Franz Hall, and a CAHS FYE-Peer Instructor.
