Academic Research Consortium Summer Program (2013) at the University of California, Santa Barbara

Academic Research Consortium Summer Program (2013) at the University of California, Santa Barbara. The ARC Program provides mentored research experiences in all disciplines to undergraduates at the junior level with the potential to succeed in graduate study, but who have experienced situations or conditions that have adversely impacted their advancement in their field of study.   The program targets talented and motivated students who can benefit from additional encouragement and academic support.

Once chosen as an ARC Scholar, the student embarks upon a 7-week summer program of research and graduate school preparation guided by UC Santa Barbara’s Graduate Division staff, faculty, and graduate student mentors.  Scholars are provided with an excellent opportunity to explore their discipline, experience research, and improve their opportunities for future study in their chosen field.  Scholars are matched individually with UCSB faculty and graduate student mentors who provide training and support.

ARC Scholars will receive the following:
*   An 7-week Summer research experience at UC Santa Barbara (June 23, 2013 – August 10, 2013)
*   $2500 stipend
*   Housing: non-UCSB students are accommodated in University Housing  *   Weekly academic enrichment and professional development workshops  *   Participation in end-of-summer symposium to present research work  *   Preparation for the Graduate Record Examination (GRE)

Please note that space is limited so we should receive applications no later than March 15, 2013.
