Summer Science Fellowships

18 January 2022

Application Deadline: Friday, February 4, 2022, 5:00 PM

Submitted by: Students

What: The goal of the Summer Science Fellowship is to broaden participation of historically underrepresented groups (based on gender, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic background, or disability) in the sciences and math. Carleton Summer Science Fellows have the opportunity to work in a research lab either at Carleton or at another institution for two summers (with guaranteed funding) with a stipend of $500/week for full time work for up to 10 weeks. Summer Science Fellows participate in group meetings and activities both before and after the summer research experience and are expected to enroll in the 1 credit Science Fellows Research Colloquium both in the spring before and the fall following their research experience.

Who: First- or second-year Carleton students with a strong excitement and interest in graduate study in fields of biology, chemistry, computer science, geology, math/stats, physics, or psychology. By the end of the 2021-2022 academic year, students must have completed at least one introductory science course with a lab, or students interested in Computer Science, Math, and/or Stats must have completed at least one course in those fields. Students who identify as members of the following groups are especially encouraged to apply:
Students from groups traditionally underrepresented in science and math fields
Students from low-income backgrounds
Students who attended under-resourced high schools
Students who are in the first-generation in their family to attend college
