University of Colorado SMART Program
Programa "SMART" de la Universidad de Colorado
Summer Multicultural Access to Research Training
Programa de Verano Multicultural para el Acceso a Entrenamiento de Investigaciones
The University of Colorado at Boulder offers 10-week summer research internships for rising juniors and seniors through the Summer Multicultural Access to Research Training (SMART) program. The program aims to improve access to STEM research for racial/ethnic groups severely underrepresented in science, math, and engineering (African American, Hispanic/Latino, American Indian/Alaska Native/ Native Pacific Islander), and for first-generation college students who are economically disadvantaged. The internships provide hands-on experience in research and an introduction to graduate education at a leading university. Fifteen to twenty undergraduates from institutions nationwide take part in this challenging and informative program each summer.
SMART interns conduct research projects in science, math, and engineering fields under the guidance of a faculty mentor and see firsthand graduate student life at a major institution.
Interns also interact in the social environment of a large university and in a community of underrepresented peers.
Applications for the 2015 SMART Program will be accepted after January 1.
SMART Program Dates: June 1 to Aug 7.
