George Washington Carver Research Program / University of Arkansas

The Carver summer internships are 8 weeks in length.  The students are provided with:

  1. A $3,000 stipend,
  2. Room and board, and
  3. Travel reimbursement.

The ideal Carver intern will have completed 60 hours of undergraduate course work and have a 3.25 cumulative grade point average.

The student will work with a faculty mentor on a research project while here, and have a research poster ready to present at the conclusion of the internship.  We hold a poster competition, and students can win a prize for their research. This poster will carry the names of the student’s home institution and the University of Arkansas, so students may continue to use the poster in subsequent presentations.

Outside of the classroom, the students engage in professional development activities, recreational activities, and participate in a GRE preparation course.  We talk with the students about responsible conduct of research, applying to graduate school, and funding for graduate school.  Each summer, we schedule speakers who may talk with the students about personal branding or etiquette.

The University of Arkansas holds a very high research classification from the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, and that is directly attributable to the quality of the research being done by our faculty and graduate students.  The interns have the chance to work alongside these faculty and graduate students, and learn from them in excellent research facilities.
