The Institute for Broadening Participation collaborated with COSEE-OS on this webinar with the goal of sharing the basics of how undergraduates can seek and apply for summer research experiences. Liv Detrick and Chris Cash from the Institute for Broadening Participation (IBP) guided participants through a concept map-based presentation highlighting a variety of information and tips that can help students to get started on or enhance their applications. Veterans of paid summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) and NASA summer internships, including Ashton Cook, a doctoral candidate at the University of Oklahoma, were also on hand to provide first-hand insights into their recent research opportunities.

Questions addressed by the concept map and resources include:

  • What can this type of hands-on experience do for my scientific career?
  • What opportunities are out there and where can they be searched?
  • What does the application process entail and what do I need to be competitive?
