The MU-Alcohol Research Training Summer School (MU-ARTSS) is designed undergraduate students interested in alcohol research and possible careers as alcohol researchers. The Department of Psychological Science at the University of Missouri (MU) hosts a diverse cadre of psychologists dedicated to research into the etiology and course of alcoholism and related disorders. The MU-ARTSS is structured into a week-long didactic program providing an intensive introduction to alcohol research followed by an 8-week research internship in the lab of a MU-ARTSS professor.
May 28 – July 27, 2019
The program seeks applicants who demonstrate a strong interest in science and medicine. Applicants ideally must have completed 2 years of undergraduate work (exceptions may be made), with a B average or better in all coursework.
The internship is a full-time experience with a stipend of $3,600. Interns will receive 1 hour of academic credit (course title: Special Problems in Psychology, Psych 2950) from the University of Missouri which is paid for by the program.
The Summer 2019 application deadline is February 15, 2019.
