The goal of the Summer Science Fellowship is to broaden participation of historically underrepresented groups (including gender, ethnicity, socioeconomic background, and disabilities) in the sciences and math. Carleton Summer Science Fellows have the opportunity to work in a research lab either at Carleton or at another institution for at least two summers with a stipend of $4,200 each summer. Summer Science Fellows participate in group meetings and activities both before and after the summer research experience and are expected to enroll in the 1 credit Science Fellows Research Colloquium both in the spring before and the fall following their research experience.
What does the award fund? Per student, a summer stipend and funds for conference travel and research supplies. Each summer, HHMI funds a cohort of 4 new Science Fellows, plus student Fellows in previous cohorts. Each Science Fellow is assured of two summers of research support. Students can use the funding to work with Carleton faculty, or with scientific investigators elsewhere.
Student eligibility: Must be a first- or second-year Carleton student with a strong excitement and interest in graduate study in fields of biology, chemistry, computer science, geology, math/stats, physics, or psychology. By the end of the 2012-2013 academic year, students must have completed at least one introductory science course with lab, or students interested in CS/math/stats must have completed at least one course in those fields. Students from the following groups are especially encouraged to apply:
