Summer Research at Notre Dame!
The Notre Dame Graduate School is seeking applicants for the Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP), which is designed to prepare aspiring graduate students for success by immersing them in guided research with a world-class faculty for 10 weeks during the summer, culminating in a research symposium on campus. The program is open to students in any discipline offered by the Notre Dame Graduate School. We are particularly seeking applications from undergraduates from underrepresented backgrounds, first-generation, or financially disadvantaged students.
Notre Dame supports students who have been admitted to the program by providing:
- A generous stipend
- Travel expenses
- GRE prep
- Specialized assistance with grant and fellowship applications to NSF, NIH, Fulbright, and more
- Graduate school application support
- Mentoring sessions
- Fee waiver when applying to ND
Over the past decade SROP participants have received awards from:
- The National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP)
- The Fulbright Program
- The National GEM Consortium
Previous participants have also been admitted to top graduate programs, including our own.
Please encourage any promising undergraduate students to visit the SROP webpage and apply before the March 15th deadline. The 2020 SROP program will run from May 18-July 25th. If students have any questions, I invite them to contact me directly using my information below.
UCSC Doris Duke Conservation Scholars
Each March we select 20 early-undergraduate Scholars from around the country to participate in a two-year conservation mentorship program centered on the summers between academic years. Each summer Scholars receive a $4400 stipend and funding to cover travel, room, and board. Our goal is to serve students from groups traditionally underrepresented in conservation, across disciplines, who can contribute to diversifying, redefining, and strengthening efforts to protect land, wildlife and water.
During the first year Scholars participate in an eight-week, immersive field course on conservation practice, leadership and ecological research while traveling with a close group of peers and mentors through California. During the second summer, Scholars pursue eight-week research and practice internships with nationally recognized conservation organizations, labs and agencies. A professional development retreat after the second summer brings together the Scholar cohort and prepares them to apply for jobs and graduate school. Throughout the two years, we work with home mentors at each Scholar’s campus to provide ongoing support, and continue to provide mentoring beyond the program.
