Summer Research Experience

Pre-Doctoral Scholars are eligible to apply for a fully funded summer research experience:

In the Fall semester, the California Pre-Doctoral Program Director invites Pre-Doctoral Scholars to apply for a Summer Research Experience to take place in the summer following the Pre-Doctoral year. Applications for the Summer Research Experience are due in early Spring.

Applications will identify faculty with whom the scholar wants to work at accredited Ph.D.-granting institutions in the continental United States, and articulate what the Scholar hopes to gain from the research experience.

Once approved for a Summer Research Experience, the scholar submits the cost of travel to the approved campus and, if the campus is out of the area, the cost of housing for the term of the Summer Research Experience. In addition to funding for approved housing and travel expenses, the Scholar will receive a food allowance and a living stipend.

The application for the Summer Research Experience must be approved and signed by the Faculty Sponsor.
