Summer Student Research Program
The Summer Student Research Program supports students working directly with faculty on Research that Reaches Out projects. The program began in May 2016 and will continue every summer until 2020.
The purpose of the summer program is to immerse students in the integration of research and service at the Explore or Express levels, connecting directly to those student learning outcomes.
If chosen for the program, the Research that Reaches Out office will provide a stipend for the faculty member, stipends for a maximum of two students, on-campus housing for the student(s), and $750 in funds for needed supplies.
Planned stipend rates are:*
Faculty 10-week stipend: $5,000 or Faculty 5-week stipend: $2,500
*Student 10-week stipend: $3,500 or Student 5-week stipend: $1,750
(*We can pro-rate the stipend amounts for projects of shorter durations. Final stipend eligibility for individual faculty will be determined in consultation with Human Resources. Faculty and students receiving stipends are expected to be providing full-time attention and/or mentoring to the project.)
Supply funds can be used for supplies, travel, or other relevant expenses that directly support the project. Travel funding for students to present research is allocated by the Office of the Provost.
*Graduating seniors are NOT eligible to participate in this program.
