UNC

The University of North Carolina at Charlotte has an exciting summer research experience for undergraduates.   This is an expansion of our current Charlotte Research Scholars program (http://graduateschool.uncc.edu/current-students/charlotte-research-scholars) for non-UNC Charlotte students from under-represented backgrounds.

This program will provide 10 undergraduate students funding to participate in a 9-week research program. Scholars receive one-on-one, faculty-guided research training, and participate in weekly professional development sessions to better prepare them for graduate school and a future research career. The program culminates in the Summer Research Symposium, held on July 23rd in the Student Union. Additional details about the program are below.

Application deadline: 5:00 pm on Monday, February 24, 2014

Program length: May 26 to July 25 (9 weeks)

Eligibility: Undergraduates with a minimum GPA of 2.8 and between 50 and 90 credit hours by the end of spring 2014.

Compensation: Scholars will receive a $6,500 fellowship.  Students will be housed on campus but must pay their housing fees directly, they can not be transferred from the fellowship compensation by UNC Charlotte.

Application: Apply here

Frequently Asked Questions:

·      How much time are scholars expected to commit to their research project?

Scholars are expected to work full-time for the entire 9-weeks. They will spend approximately 3-4 hrs/week away from the project in order to participate in professional development activities.

·      How will the scholars be selected?

The ADVANCE Faculty Affairs and Diversity Office’s Expanded CRS admissions committee will attempt to match the most qualified students with research projects that are of interest to them. Students that meet the minimum GPA requirements will be further evaluated with respect to grades in specific subjects that are close to the field of research as well as other materials submitted and letters of recommendations.

To facilitate matching, students are asked to provide information regarding the types of research in which they are most interested. If a match is identified, the faculty member will be contacted to see if there is interest in the applicant.

·      What materials are required beyond the application form?

A copy of your transcripts and two recommendation letters are required. At least one recommendation should be from a science teacher/professor.

·      Whom do I contact if I have additional questions?

ADVANCE Faculty Affairs and Diversity Office (advanceuncc@uncc.edu)

Applications are encouraged from students who wish to learn to conduct research in a modern academic research laboratory under the guidance of experienced scientists and engineers and experiment in real classroom environments.

·      How many positions are available?

UNC Charlotte can accommodate as many as 10 positions in 2014.
