K-State Research and Extension Multicultural Summer Research Fellowship

The Multicultural Undergraduate and Graduate Summer Research Fellowship will provide an opportunity for multicultural students to work closely with faculty members as part of their research teams. Students are expected to spend 35 hours per week working with their research teams and to be contributing members of this group. By the end of the 8 week period, June 6 to July 29, students should have produced tangible results from experimental research and will report the results in a special research forum. This Fellowship is excellent experience for students who plan to attend graduate or professional school.

Students selected to participate in the K-State program will be paired with faculty in research projects that match a student's interests. Faculty and other members of the research team are committed to working closely with the students to train them in research techniques as well as regularly discussing their projects and progress.

Students may also attend summer classes on research ethics and compliance, and informal seminars and meetings of the research groups as part of the process of becoming members of the research team.

This summer the students that were selected into the 2017 K-State Research and Extension Multicultural Undergraduate and Graduate Summer Research Fellowship Program represented the following Universities: Prairie View A&M University, Florida A&M University, North Carolina A&T State University, and Kansas State University.
