FYRE Program Pairs Students with Faculty Research Mentors
The First Year Research Experience (FYRE) program at JMU is aimed towards freshmen and transfer students and allows them a chance to partner with a faculty member for a mentored research project.
Professors from all departments are encouraged to apply for the program. Dayna Henry, the Coordinator for Student Creative Activities and Research, said the application involves faculty members describing what they will be researching and matching them up with students who have similar interests.
