About the REMS fellowship
Are you interested in applying to a doctoral program or would you like to find out more about what Ph.D. programs entail?

The University of Michigan School of Information is hosting a 12-week intensive summer Research Experience for Master’s Students (REMS) from other iSchool master’s programs, schools of library and information science, or related programs, May 25–August 14, 2020, in Ann Arbor, Michigan. (Please note that this program is only available to US Citizens and Permanent Residents.)
Develop your research skills with world-renowned faculty and in leading institutions on the U-M campus. The students selected for the 2020 summer program will engage in a variety of research projects and receive close mentorship as they investigate key issues in information science with UMSI faculty or practitioners. The REMS program supplements the experience in the research project with a broad range of educational and social activities that create a community of scholars among participating students. Students completing the program will be eligible to apply for funding to attend a conference to present their research project.
