Eligibility: Students must be undergraduates in their sophomore or junior year, and U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the U.S. and its possessions.
Stipends: Students will receive a summer stipend of $5000 for the 10-week program, full room and board, a research allowance, and a travel allowance.
