We hope that the start of the fall semester is going well for you! For many students in their final year, this is graduate application season, and many people are preparing their statements of purpose and personal statements to be the most competitive applicants as possible. However, there are opportunities for students in their 2nd or 3rd year! There are many different summer research programs that will be opening their applications soon, and these will also require personal writings. The benefits of these programs include:
- Paid stipend (usually $3,000+ !!)
- Cutting-edge research
- Mentorship and networking
- Room and Board
- Recreational activities
We’ve compiled a list of different programs that our Chapter members have applied and participated in, found here. We’d also like to remind you that there is a workshop for preparing personal statements/statements of purpose on October 4th, 2018 at 5 pm in Hensill Hall 501! We’ll be happy to help you develop these statements, and hopefully, get you accepted into one of these programs! We hope to see you soon!
