Summer Research Opportunities in the Sciences and Social Sciences Workshops

office of scholar development (osd)

The Office of Scholar Development will be offering three workshops for students interested in applying for summer research opportunities in the sciences and social sciences. The first fifteen minutes of the workshops will provide an overview of the different opportunities and some general application advice. The last forty-five minutes will be open for one-on-one meetings, where students can get feedback back from one or two different people on the elements of their applications.  We will have pizza for the two evening sessions and snacks for the afternoon session.
