Schapiro Undergraduate Research Fellowships at Randolph-Macon College
The Office of Undergraduate Research is pleased to announce that summer research fellowships will again be available in 2013 to rising juniors and seniors. Exceptional rising sophomores will also be considered. The program will take place from Monday, June 10, 2013 to Friday, August 9, 2013. Projects are expected to represent a full-time job for the student during the duration of the project, i.e. 40 hours per week. Students are not allowed to take summer school classes during the SURF program. Part time jobs are discouraged, but if necessary must be restricted to weekends.
At the conclusion of the summer research program, each fellowship recipient will be required to turn in a final written report no later than August 9, 2013. Additionally, each student will present his/her findings/conclusions in a celebratory S.U.R.F. conference on August 8, 2013 and at the annual research day in May of 2014.
Each awardee will receive a $3,500 stipend and free lodging (townhouse apartments) during the period of his or her fellowship. In addition, funds are available for project supplies and student travel. Students are recommended to have a cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.00 at the time of application, and must identify a Randolph-Macon faculty member as sponsor and research advisor.
Completed proposals (see guidelines) are due in the Provost's Office by 5:00 p.m. Friday, March 8, 2013 with an electronic copy of the proposal only via email attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org with your last name/advisor's last name as the name of your proposal. Faculty advisors must review the proposal before submission. We will make every attempt to inform applicants about their proposal status by March 22, 2013. Please contact Dr. Serge Schreiner (ext. 7206 or e-mail email@example.com) or Dr. Kelly Lambert (ext. 4717 or email firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions or concerns. Students from all departments and programs are encouraged to apply.
