Due to the risks associated with large number of student participation under the current threat of Global Pandemic caused by the COVID-19 virus, we are cancelling the 11th Annual Undergraduate Research Day Event originally scheduled for Thursday April 30, 2020.

Summer Nursing Program: School of Nursing

This 8-week program offers nursing undergraduates in their junior year with outstanding academic potential the opportunity to work on research projects with School of Nursing faculty mentors.

It is designed for students who plan to pursue the PhD degree and enter academic careers in nursing.

Program includes stipend, on-campus housing, meal allowance, funds toward roundtrip transportation cost, GRE test preparation, formal and informal discussion on career options and other activities. Each student participant will be assigned to a faculty mentor matched as closely as possible to the student’s research interests and career goals. Participants will either assist the faculty member in an ongoing research project or, with approval of faculty, work collaboratively with the mentor in designing a new project of mutual interest.

Research areas: Biobehavioral Sciences, Biologic Sciences, Health Disparities/Vulnerable Populations and Health Services Research.
U.S. citizen or permanent resident.

  • For qualified nursing students currently holding undergraduate junior status.
  • Preference given to first-generation college students.
  • Cumulative, minimum GPA of 2.80.
  • Application Deadline: March 31, 2017

Preference will be given to applications that are completed by the program’s deadline. Notification of decisions will be made by the end of May 2017.
