Funded by the National Science Foundation, our program offers a unique opportunity for talented undergraduates to do state-of-the-art research and gain valuable skills while exploring career opportunities in the sciences. Training activities include research seminar presentations, hands-on training in field and/or laboratory techniques, a trip behind the scenes at the Indianapolis Zoo and a visit to the Exotic Feline Rescue Center. Students conduct individual research projects under the guidance of their mentors and prepare final professional presentations of the results. We also offer workshops on taking the GRE, research ethics, and applying to graduate school.
Please note that program participants must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States or its possessions. Those who will have completed the requirements for a bachelor's degree before June 2013 are NOT eligible to apply.
