Graduate Summer Research Mentorship Program - Awardee Information

Student Expectations

Participants are expected to complete a draft of a paper (either single authored by the student or co-authored with their faculty mentor) by the end of the summer. This paper should be submitted for presentation at a professional conference and/or for publication sometime during the following academic year.

Student participants will be encouraged to attend occasional meetings for professional development and to provide general feedback on the program.

Students will be asked to evaluate the program and their research experience at the end of the program. This evaluation is a program requirement.

Please note, all participants must complete the online Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) Training Program. It is University policy that each student dealing with human subjects through personal contact or communication media, as in the case of interviews conducted via satellite, be so certified in order to be in compliance with University and governmental regulations applicable to human research subjects. Completion of this online course is required in order to be eligible to receive the $500 conference travel reimbursement later in the academic year. Please submit a copy of your certification with your request for reimbursement.

 

Faculty Mentor Expectations

It is expected that the faculty mentor will be in the same locale as the student during the summer and committed to working closely with the student.

Mentors will be asked to provide general feedback on the program.

Faculty mentors will be asked to submit an online program evaluation to the Graduate Division at the end of the program.
