GUIDELINES

  • Criteria to considered if accepted to more than one opportunity:
    • Research area
    • Potential institution to pursue advance studies
    • Networking criteria
examples
EXAMPLES:
  • "Minority Undergraduate Research Fellowships (MURF)" California Institute of Technology (Caltech).. This experience will provide excellent preparation for students interested in subsequently pursuing a Ph.D. MURF students are welcomed into Caltech’s community of researchers and scholars. Students carry out individual research projects under the mentorship of Caltech faculty or JPL technical staff over an 8 to 10 week summer period. MURF students will work on a day-to-day basis with graduate student/postdoctoral scholar co-mentors.. MURF students may participate in a wealth of programs and activities coordinated by the Student-Faculty Programs office. Students receive a payment of $600/week plus housing and travel allowance.http://www.murf.caltech.edu/applicants/index.html
  • Stanford Summer Research Program in Biomedical Sciences.The Stanford Summer Research Program in Biomedical Sciences/Amgen Scholars Program is a fully funded, eight week, residential internship program. It offers undergraduates who want to prepare for and enter Ph.D. programs in the sciences a unique opportunity for advanced research experience within a world class university. Our tentative program dates for 2008 are June 22 - August 16. Students participating in the Stanford Summer Research Program are fully funded during their stay. Stanford will provide students with summer housing, meals, and travel to and from the summer research program. Additionally, all SSRP participants will receive a $3,200 stipend.. http://ssrp.stanford.edu/
