UR@UWM Summer Research for Incoming Students

Application Deadline: April 1, 2011

The Office of Undergraduate Research will be inviting a small group of incoming students to campus for four weeks during the summer (June 27-July 22) to engage in cutting edge research with leading UWM faculty.

This competitive program will provide room and board in the Sandburg residence halls for this period of time, as well as pair each student with a researcher on campus. Students will spend 20-30 hours a week in their research mentors' lab settings, as well as meet twice weekly with the other summer researchers for a semester course that introduces them to the culture of university research. There will also be social activities with other incoming students to help make valuable connections and become familiar with the UWM environment. There is no cost to participate in this program.
