Summer Experiences

Click Here to Apply for the Summer Scholars 

Summer Scholars Description:

The WISE RP supports 4-8 students engaging in research or an internship each summer. The summer scholars program provides professional development through workshops, research symposiums, and social/cultural activities as well as financial support ($2000-$4000/student) to offset expenses incurred over the summer as many of the research experiences and internships are unpaid. WISE RP summer scholars are funded through the generosity of donors who are champions of the community. 

Summer Scholars complete 200 hours of research and/or internship and participate in weekly professional development activities. These activities are an opportunity to reflect on research/internship experiences, develop new professional and research skills, and gain advice and support to navigate research and internship spaces. Summer Scholars build upon their learning through ALA 107 and 108 to discover ways in which they can grow their professional identities in STEM.

  • Increase your efficacy and capacity as an emerging researcher and STEM professional through hands-on research/internship experience
