The CAMP Summer Research Scholars Program is a 10-week program that enables UCI students to conduct research at UCI or various research centers during the summer. Under the mentorship of a faculty research advisor, students are introduced to the challenging and fascinating world of academic research. Furthermore, students may prepare a presentation and present their findings at various conferences throughout the year. Summer Scholars have gone on to present at conferences around the country in cities such as: Boston, Miami, Chicago, St. Louis, New Orleans, Austin, and many others!
Applications for Summer Science Scholars 2017 are due on May 12, 2017.
In addition to the mentorship of a faculty research advisor, students have the opportunity to learn and build on the basics of research writing and presentation. Below are topics that will be covered during the program:
- Putting together an abstract
- Critical/Analytical Thinking
- Adventures in poster making
- Graduate School (Is it for you?)
- Writing a scientific paper
- Writing a personal statement
- Social Skills 101
Upon completion of the program, participants are required to submit a 10-12 page research paper during Week 0 (date TBD). Participants will also present their findings at the CAMP Undergraduate Symposium, Tuesday, September 26th, 2017. After the submission of the scientific paper and the presentations, students may be awarded a stipend.
