Summer Research Internship in Social, Behavior, or Economic Sciences

Summer Research Initiative to Increase Diversity

DEADLINE TO APPLY: Febrauary 15th

An Overview of the UMD Summer Research Initiative
The Summer Research Initiative was created in 1999 by the Office of the Dean in the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences (BSOS) and is supported by the Office of the Provost, the Graduate School, the Office of the Vice President for Research, the College, and a grant from the National Science Foundation (SBE-AGEP). The goals of the program are to provide rising juniors and seniors an opportunity to learn about graduate studies and increase their interest in doctoral-level training in the social, behavioral and economic science fields. The program has a special emphasis on population groups underrepresented in these fields (i.e., African Americans, Hispanics, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians or other Pacific Islanders).

Program Details
This 8-week program will be held on the University of Maryland, College Park campus from June 2 through July 25, 2008. Students will be provided a meaningful research experience by working with a faculty mentor in one of our nine academic departments: African American Studies, Anthropology, Criminology & Criminal Justice, Economics, Geography, Government & Politics, Hearing & Speech Sciences, Psychology and Sociology. We will also supplement their research experience with lectures, workshops, and networking opportunities.

Students will be provided round-trip airfare, meals, room and board in University on-campus housing and a stipend of $2,700.

How to Apply
Basic eligibility requirements include (but are not limited to) junior or senior status by Fall 2008; interest in a career in the social, behavior, or economic sciences; and U.S. citizen or permanent resident status. We are especially interested in applications from students underrepresented in the social, behavioral, and economic sciences. The application deadline is February 15, 2008.
