The ARI SUMMER PROGRAM will resume IN 2022! 

**Unfortunately, we are unable to offer research opportunities during Summer 2021 because of lab space constraints due to the pandemic.**


Sophomores, Juniors, and Transfer Students: Apply for Summer

The Accelerated Research Initiative (ARI) Summer Start offers upper division CNS students who did not participate in FRI the opportunity to participate in research on campus. 


  • CNS sophomores and juniors who did not participate in FRI.
  • Transfer students who have been accepted to CNS.

Program Overview

  • Summer: Students join one of the Research Streams for a 6-8 week unpaid research internship. Placement is based on students’ interest and lab availability.
  • Fall: With the consent of their Research Educator, ARI students can enroll in one of their Research Stream's fall course offerings.


  • Check back in Spring 2022!
