Dear Dr. Rockstraw,
I hope things are well in New Mexico! It is hard to believe, but we are already preparing for our “Pathways” summer research program.
This is a paid opportunity for underrepresented students from Minority Serving Institutions. Would you be willing to share this message with your students and/or with faculty colleagues to distribute to students? Students can join our mailing list to be notified when the application opens.
This program provides a paid summer research experience including a $4500 stipend, free housing, and a travel allowance. Participants will work with a faculty mentor on a research project, present results at the end-of-summer symposium, attend special workshops, and more!
Applicants should be one year from graduating, interested in a PhD, and willing to learn about a faculty career. Eligibility criteria includes: US Citizen, member of an underrepresented minority group in engineering, and pursuing an engineering or closely related bachelor’s degree at a Minority Serving Institution. See complete eligibility, application, and program details at www.engr.purdue.edu/pathways.
Any questions may be directed to the program director, Dr. Audeen Fentiman at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am also available to assist – reach out any time.
Thank you for your help in spreading the word on this opportunity!
