The Office of the Dean for Graduate Education at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology will host its annual MIT Summer Research Program (MSRP) from:
June 6 – August 7, 2010.
The MSRP, an institutional effort that began in 1986, facilitates the involvement of talented students in research aspects of the fields of engineering and science-particularly those who are underrepresented in these fields. This summer program seeks to identify talented sophomores, juniors and non-graduating seniors from around the country who could benefit from
spending a summer on MIT’s campus, working in a research laboratory under the tutelage and guidance of experienced scientists and engineers. The program features supervision by an MIT faculty member and postdoctoral fellow or advanced graduate student; weekly seminars/workshops; preparation and delivery of a research poster and paper; individual counseling on academic careers; hands-on training in active, “real-world” laboratories; and participation in social and cultural activities in the area.
Minority underclassmen (particularly African-American, American Indian/Alaskan Native, Mexican American and Puerto Rican students) interested in science and engineering that would benefit from a 9-week, research-intensive summer program. Additional program details, applicant requirements and the online application can be found on the web
