The Research Mentoring Program (RMP) is designed to partner graduate students who are working on the dissertation research with undergraduates who are interested in participating in research.

This summer program is designed to support doctoral students in their dissertation research while providing an opportunity for undergraduates to learn more about graduate studies and graduate-level research. As a participant, doctoral students will receive a $1,000 stipend for your summer mentoring and a budget of up to $500 for your research costs. Undergraduates will also receive a $1,000 stipend for serving as a research assistant.

Components of the program include:

Mentoring: One-to-one mentoring of an undergraduate student for 6-8 weeks during the summer 2012.

Required Meetings:  Meetings with graduate and undergraduate student participants and the Assistant Dean - an introduction meeting where participants learn about the requirements and goals of the program, a joint presentation meeting where the undergraduates learn about the graduate experiences of the doctoral students, undergraduate meeting with Associate Director of Graduate Admissions, and a final presentation meeting where the graduate and undergraduate team share research accomplishments with the group.

Required Presentation:  Poster presentations at both the Graduate Research Symposium and LUROP Research Symposium in spring, 2013.
