OEOES Summer Research Fellowship 2019: Applications due March 3

The Office of Educational Opportunity and Enrichment Services is excited to announce its second Summer Research Fellowship! Participants will conduct research for 10 weeks under the guidance of a faculty mentor. They will also attend weekly meetings to explore research and pre-grad/law topics, and be paid a stipend. The fellowship will culminate in a symposium where the participants will present their research. The program is intended for students with no research experience who are interested in grad or law school.

Eligibility

  • Sophomore or junior with no prior research experience.
  • Must be available to conduct research full-time (40 hours a week) during the duration of the fellowship (June 24-August 30).
  • Minimum 3.0 GPA; if your GPA is below 3.0, you will be asked to explain why the GPA does not reflect your academic potential.
  • All majors are welcome to apply; however, priority will be given to research projects that explore the following topics: higher education, equity, civic engagement, student experience, underrepresented and under-served populations.

Requirements

  • Online form.
  • Personal statement (500 words) submitted via the online form.
  • One letter of rec written by professor, TA, staff, mentor, supervisor, etc, and emailed directly to clegalls@ucdavis.edu.
  • Applicants don't need to have secured a faculty mentor at the time of application, but should have a sense of their research interests. If selected, we will help you find a mentor if you don't have one.

Applications, including the personal statement and letter of rec are due on March 3. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed. For questions, please email clegalls@ucdavis.edu
