Mcubed Scholars

The Mcubed Scholars Summer Internship Program, was funded by the U-M Office of Research (UMOR) and administered through the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program, a pilot initiative designed to provide U-M students with summer research opportunities on multidisciplinary faculty led research projects. Mcubed was a first-of-its-kind program in which faculty-student teams receive (start up) funding, to work on innovative research. Students had the opportunity to conduct research with an Mcubed team consisting of at least three faculty from two different campus units (schools/colleges). The Mcubed program involved every school and college on campus so the range of research topics explored by teams is vast, from global health, to economic development in Detroit, to big data, to cancer research, and more.

Major: Economics

Minor: middle eastern studies

My freshman year I joined a research lab because I thought it would look good on my application to med school. It's two years later now and I'm not even going into medicine any more, yet here I am still researching. I found out during this time that working in a lab where literally every single person is a lot smarter than you is a really good life experience to have. Learning how to approach a problem, following instructions, and asking questions along the way are very important skills to learn, regardless of major.
