STAR Mentor and Research Options

Through the application process, applicants will have the opportunity to request an Augusta University faculty member to work with for the summer. Every effort will be made to place accepted STAR participants with a requested faculty member or area of interest of their choice. However, in the event that this is not possible, the STAR committee will assign each STAR a mentor.

Choices of potential STAR mentors and/or areas of research interest should be indicated and discussed by the applicant on the application form.

If an applicant has no preference of STAR mentor or area of scientific interest, then “no preference” should be indicated on the application and the STAR committee will assign a mentor to the STAR.

Where to find STAR Mentor Options

STAR mentors must hold an academic appointment in The Graduate School at Augusta University. To identify faculty members who may be eligible to serve as a potential STAR mentor, you can scan the following websites for faculty and research listings:
