June 6 through August 12, 2016
Application Deadline: March 15, 2016
The Heisig/Gleysteen Chemistry Summer Research Program is designed to
encourage students in chemistry to learn more about research in chemistry
and provide them with the opportunity to work in a lab under the direction
of a faculty member. This program will run in conjunction with the LANDO
program which brings in students selected from a national competition.
Eligibility: Applications are now being accepted from those presently
enrolled as chemistry majors at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities
Campus. You must have at least one year left in school. Applications
must include two letters of support and recommendation, including one
(must be) from your research advisor.
Each Chemistry Summer Research Fellow will receive a
stipend of $4,500 for a 10-week period. Appointments will begin on June
6, 2016 and run for 10-weeks through, August 12, 2016. This is considered
a full-time position.
In addition to research, Chemistry Summer Research Fellows will participate
in a formal research symposium on their work at the end of the summer.
Funds are available for travel to a national meeting (such as the spring
national meeting of the American Chemical Society) to present the results
of your summer's research during the following year.
