Summer Program to Increase Diversity in UG Research

The Summer Program to Increase Diversity in Undergraduate Research (SPIDUR) is an 8-week summer program for high-achieving under-represented, first generation, or disabled undergraduate students, providing research experience and professional development training in their field of interest. These opportunities are not typically available in the undergraduate classroom. This learn-by-doing model places an emphasis on graduate education and allows the Scholars to put their experiential learning into practice, preparing them to excel in their future studies and research. In addition to mentored research activities, scholars participate in weekly professional development training to build skills critical to professional success. Topics include: responsible conduct of research, developing a competitive research fellowship application, preparing an academic resume, professional communication tools, and a session on preparing for graduate school. The program culminates with the Summer Research Symposia, where students participating in summer research programs on campus present their research results. The Summer Research Symposia is free and open to the public.

Summer scholars receive a stipend of $4000 for the 8 weeks of the program. Housing will be provided, but space is limited. Travel to UNC Charlotte is not supported by the program. For further information, please contact advanceuncc@uncc.edu. The Charlotte Research Scholars are sponsored by the Division of Academic Affairs, Graduate School, and Charlotte Research Institute. APPLY at: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdUMWqUw5em90Qbm-HrsrDPPzWqmfjXBOuBZ76LGJ14wv2mYQ/viewform by December 14, 2018. Specific Details about the Program (https://advance.uncc.edu/node/286)

Program length: 8 weeks during summer of 2019. The program will run from June 3, 2019 through July 26, 2019

Eligibility: Undergraduates must have a minimum GPA of 2.8, and between 50 and 90 credit hours by the end of spring 2019. Students who graduate in spring 2019 are NOT eligible for the program - candidates must be enrolled in an undergraduate program from an institution other than UNC Charlotte to be eligible for SPIDUR.
