The Graduate School

Research Mentoring Program

The Research Mentoring Program (RMP) is designed to support doctoral students in their dissertation research while providing an opportunity for undergraduates to learn more about graduate studies and graduate-level research. As a participant, doctoral students will receive a $1,000 stipend for their summer mentoring and a budget of up to $500 for their research costs. Undergraduates will also receive a $1,000 stipend for serving as a research assistant.

Graduate student participants have already been chosen for 2016. Applications are now being accepted for undergraduate student participants.

Undergraduate Students

Program Components Include:

Mentoring: One-to-one mentoring of an undergraduate student for 6-8 weeks during the summer 2016.
