Attention Juniors! Here is an amazing opportunity for summer research offered through UCLA and the Bunche Center Summer Humanities Institute (SHI). This is an opportunity to work with faculty members at UCLA on a research project for eight weeks. The program is designed for students planning to pursue a PhD.
A stipend is offered, as well as an allowance for room and meals. Round-trip travel will be reimbursed up to $450. Some of the features offered through the program include seminars on career opportunities, GRE prep, information about applying to graduate school, and more.
Participating in the program means full completion of the eight weeks (from June 24, 2012 – August 18, 2012). Enrolling in other courses or working another job is not permitted. The research you will undergo requires a full-time commitment. Students will give an oral presentation and submit a 15-page report and a one-page abstract describing his/her research.
