Description:
The MAOP Undergraduate Summer Research Internship (SRI) started in Summer 1993, and since then has been a transformative experience for hundreds of students. Students from a wide variety of academic disciplines spend ten weeks during the summer (late May - late July/early August) working closely with a faculty mentor in a mentor/protege relationship to design, conduct and present a scholarly research presentation.

Students interact with other student researchers, faculty and graduate students in different areas of study, using state-of-the-art equipment, and attend seminars on the nature of graduate academic life.

Students also prepare to take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), and receive counseling on gaining admission to graduate school and available funding opportunities. In addition, the experience provides for a two day retreat at Camp Alta Mons, and provides students with the opportunity to enhance their personal growth and development.

Students devote at least 40 hours a week on their respective research projects and scholarly activities. At the conclusion of the program, students will present their research to their fellow SRI peers, faculty mentors, and guests. The research is presented using a poster format and oral presentation. This research symposium is the culminating event of the experience, and takes place during the last week of the program.
