Daphne Guinn '11 took part in the program, and Phillip Wages '10 was accepted the summer before. The review of applications for this year's program will begin in early February.
Students in this 10-week program will perform research under the mentorship of faculty and graduate students, present their work at a research seminar, attend workshops on careers in science, and will be exposed to the diversity of research done at UNC. Our past students have also enjoyed life in Chapel Hill, the chance to visit other areas in the North Carolina Research Triangle and forays to the Atlantic coast. The program provides a $4,500 stipend, travel funds and free room and board. This is an excellent opportunity for current Sophomores and Juniors.
