Masters’ Scholars Research Program (Check out highlights from last year's program here.)

The Masters’ Scholars Research Program (MSRP) provides students the opportunity to partner with researchers to design studies, analyze data, and/or convert their findings to benefit society. The outcomes can result in better management practices, commercialization of technology, or new approaches to global challenges.

MSRP is a voluntary, selective program. Qualifying students will collaborate with Lally faculty or faculty across the Rensselaer campus to realize practical outcomes from research. Students completing this program will receive a certificate of accomplishment. Past participants in the program have received research fellowships as a result of their work, and others have helped faculty license technology or participated in the establishment of a high-tech venture.

Possible research opportunities include (but are not limited to):
- Working with Lally faculty to translate research projects into white papers that can be read by managers and whose prescriptions can be adopted for practitioner use.
- Investigating a current issue or emerging trend thus creating new research questions for faculty to study.
- Working with faculty in the School of Engineering or Science, including, for example, the BioMedical Engineering department and the Center for Biotechnology and Interdisciplinary studies (CBIS) or the Center for Future Energy Systems (CFES), to help them find commercial pathways for lab research discoveries and inventions. 

Requirements of the program:

- The program is voluntary, but if a student or student team commits to a project they are expected to complete it.
- Students can work independently or in teams.
- Students can select their project of interest; projects will not be assigned to students.
- Regular meetings and coaching sessions allow student(s) to provide progress reports and receive faculty feedback.
- Projects must be completed during the duration of a student's enrollment at Lally.
