Students in the Humanities and Social Sciences looking for summer research—
I would like to announce that the University of California, Irvine (UC Irvine) is now accepting applications for our UC-HBCU Summer Research Program in Social Ecology. This Sumer Research Program is geared toward providing research experience in the social sciences for advanced undergraduate students currently attending HBCUs. The program is a part of the UC-HBCU initiative through the University of California’s Office of the President. Through this summer research program, we hope to provide an opportunity for students interested in psychology, criminology, sociology, and other social sciences to come to UC Irvine for 8 weeks in the summer and conduct research with our faculty. We also hope to begin establishing pipelines between HBCUs and our institution, so that more undergraduates from HBCUs apply to our graduate programs and eventually go on to become professors.
I am sending information about our program in the hopes that your institution will disseminate this information to students who may be interested in participating, and to faculty in your departments who may know of promising students who should apply. Here is a link to our webpage: http://socialecology.uci.edu/summerresearch.
The application for summer 2014 is available for download on our program webpage, but I’m also attaching an electronic version of our application that you can share with students and faculty. Applications are due December 15, 2013. I am also attaching an electronic flyer, which also contains a little more information about the Summer Research Program.
Here is a link to our School of Social Ecology website, where your students can learn more about our departments at UCI (listed under the “Academics & Research” tab), particularly in Psychology and Social Behavior (PSB) and Criminology, Law and Society (CLS): http://socialecology.uci.edu/.
Thank you in advance for your assistance, and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly at email@example.com.
* 2014 Public Policy Leadership Conference*
The Public Policy and Leadership Conference (PPLC) at the Harvard Kennedy
School of Government was created to address the disproportionately low
number of students from underrepresented groups enrolled in top graduate
programs in public policy. This outreach focus stems from a core belief
that communities in the U.S. and across the globe are best served by public
managers, policy makers and civic leaders who accurately represent the
diverse backgrounds and perspectives of their constituencies.
The 2014 PPLC will take place at Harvard from February 20-23, 2014,
convening 50 college freshmen and sophomores from all over the country for
intensive policy immersion. Student participants will have a unique
opportunity to engage with Harvard Kennedy School faculty, graduate
students, and administrators. Participants will also connect with
fellowship programs and other graduate programs who share PPLC’s commitment
to diversity in public service.
