Summer Sanger Research Program
Sanger Summer Research Program
The Sanger Summer Research Program focuses on collaboration between faculty and students on a sustained research project, with particular focus on moving that research toward public presentation and/or publication.
Faculty and advanced students (rising juniors and seniors). Graduated students are not eligible for the program. (This includes students returning for an Honors Term.)
May 28 through July 20, 2018.
- Student and faculty partners will develop a collaborative model in which the faculty member and student each plays a significant role in the advancement of an ongoing or new research project and in the dissemination of the new knowledge the project produces.
- We expect the program to be a full-time commitment for students. Therefore, students may not hold any on campus job in addition to being a Sanger Scholar.
- Participating students and faculty members will be on campus for the full eight weeks of the program.
- Faculty/Student teams will prepare for and attend weekly meetings with a research cluster that includes 1-3 other teams, as well as other meetings associated with the Sanger program, as scheduled.
- Students are required to present their work at the end of the program, to submit a polished draft of the research completed, and to participate in Spring Symposium. They receive a unit of academic credit for the successful completion of the project.
- Students and faculty will actively participate in the evaluation of the program and their participation in it.
- Summer tuition, room, and board (lunch and dinner) for participating students
- $2700 stipend for participating students
- $3500 stipend for participating faculty
- $650 in research funds for each team project (to be spent and reimbursed by 9/1/18)
- Support for presentation and publication
Students may receive up to $500 for travel to a regional or national conference for presentation of work related to their Sanger project or $500 in bookstore credit for acceptance of their work in a peer-reviewed publication within one year of completing the Sanger program.
Faculty are eligible for an additional $250 in professional development funding for presentation at a regional or national conference of work completed through collaboration with a 2015 Sanger student or $1000 in professional development funding for the acceptance of work completed through collaboration with a 2017 Sanger student by a peer-reviewed journal within two years of completing the summer program.
