Paid Summer Research at Emory University for Diverse Scholars

Emory University’s Laney Graduate School under the Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Engagement Office will be hosting the Laney Graduate School’s Summer Opportunity for Academic Research (LGS-SOAR) program.  Application Deadline is January 28, 2019.
 
The university is attempting to identify talented underrepresented minority – particularly Black/African American, American Indian, Latinx/Hispanic, and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander – and underserved undergraduate students who may benefit from a highly-competitive, 10-week, research-intensive experience. We are seeking emerging researchers interested in pursuing a Ph.D. in one of over 40 academic programs at Emory including humanities, arts, social sciences, and natural, physical and biomedical sciences. Additional program details, eligibility requirements and online application can be found on the web at LGS-SOAR.
 
The program is unique in that all scholars will be mentored by Emory Faculty and teams of postdocs, research technicians, graduate students, and other undergraduates. SOAR researchers receive a housing award for residence on the Emory campus and a stipend to support their full-time attention to research training and developing professional development skills on:
  • Communicating research to a variety of audiences
  • Problem-solving
  • Interpreting results
  • Participating in novel research
  • Navigating difficult ethical situations
  • Network building 
Please help us spread the word about LGS-SOAR 2019 by forwarding this announcement to interested students, faculty, and staff at your institution.
 
I am happy to answer any questions and look forward to the applicants you will send our way. Thank you in advance for your support in broadening participation in graduate education!
 
Application deadline is January 28.
