Priority Application Deadline: February 21, 2019
This is a program specifically for students at Missouri LSAMP schools (Harris-Stowe State University, Lincoln University, Missouri State University, St. Louis Community College, Truman State University, University of Central Missouri, University of Missouri – St. Louis, and Washington University in St. Louis). Undergraduates from Alliance Schools selected for this program will live on campus in Columbia and conduct research for 9 weeks. This is a full-time program and students may NOT enroll in other coursework or hold part-time jobs. Students are expected to be in Columbia for the whole 9 weeks (no vacations); although, no activities are planned on weekends and students may go home if they wish. Most students find that staying in Columbia on weekends is beneficial to their overall experience. Students will participate in all aspects of the larger summer program at Mizzou including orientation, educational programming, social events, and the Forum (poster session) at the end of the summer on July 25, 2019. The MU Office of Undergraduate Research will process applications and make selections and research placements in collaboration with MU science faculty. We are seeking students with career interests that include scientific research.
Applicants are expected to have completed at least one year of full-time college enrollment prior to June 2019 and be currently enrolled at a MoLSAMP college or university. Students graduating prior to December 2019 are not eligible. Students must be citizens or permanent residents of the U.S. Applicants must also have a GPA of 3.0 or higher, and provide a letter of endorsement from your MoLSAMP site director.
