About the IRC

The Interdisciplinary Research Collaborative (IRC) celebrated its tenth year in 2013! The IRC program is designed  to provide opportunities for undergraduate students to engage in a full-time mentored summer research experience, and we have supported research projects for about 100 Rose-Hulman students from nine academic disciplines. Each fall, we host an Undergraduate Research Symposium, attracting undergraduate researchers from across the region in addition to Rose-Hulman students. We acknowledge with gratitude the past support from the Edwards Lifesciences Fund, and the additional support from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. For 2015, the IRC program is joining with the Rose-Hulman Undergraduate Research Program (RSURP) and the Reba Weaver Endowment to fund summer research.

Upcoming events: Applications to RSURP/Weaver/IRC are currently being reviewed, and we hope to start sending out acceptances soon.
