Peach State LSAMP Bridge to the Doctorate Program 2018-2020

The University of Georgia received funding from the National Science Foundation to support The Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) Bridge to the Doctorate (BD) Fellowship program. The BD program builds on the university’s longstanding Peach State Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation program and the UGA Graduate School’s Gateway to Graduate School Bridge and Graduate Feeder Programs. The award supports 12 dedicated graduate students from underrepresented minority backgrounds who are pursuing graduate studies in science,technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) programs at UGA.

NSF BD Fellowship Benefits:

  • $32,000 stipend per year during the two years of the program
  • $12,000 cost-of-education allowance for tuition, fees, etc. for each of the two years
  • Professional development travel awards
  • BD Fellows meetings and workshops
  • Up to three years assistantship support after the two years of the BD Fellowship program for as long as the student remains enrolled in the degree program and maintains good academic standing (maintains a 3.00 GPA, makes satisfactory progress in the graduate degree program, etc.)

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident
  • Must be admitted to a UGA MS or PhD program in a STEM discipline
  • Must provide evidence of participation in LSAMP undergraduate program
  • Must submit a letter of recommendation from undergraduate LSAMP program director or designee

Summer Research Experience for Undergraduate (REU) Students in Cybermanufacturing | Application deadline: April 10, 2018

UNDERGRADUATE SUMMER RESEARCH

Call for Applications for Summer Research Experience for Undergraduate (REU) Students in Cybermanufacturing

An NSF-funded Cybermanufacturing REU Site at Texas A&M University is inviting applications for undergraduate students (rising juniors and seniors in STEM disciplines) who are strongly interested in summer research experience.  Participants will be given the opportunity to work alongside faculty and graduate student mentors in ongoing faculty research in cybermanufacturing related topics. These include developing new “Apps” for real-time applications, architecture and working with innovative machines and data analytics, and investigating new design approaches. The participants will also have an opportunity to participate in several enrichment activities like industry tour, GRE workshop, research seminar, and Aggies Invent program.  The program description and how to apply are given below.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
The summer research program oncybermanufacturing is an REU Program (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) with funding provided by the National Science Foundation. This REU will take place over the 10-week period from May 29 to August 6, and will include undergraduate students from other universities as well as students from Texas A&M. This summer’s program will include a cohort of up to ten students. Financially, travel costs for field trips will be supported and housing will be provided at no cost to each participant. Additionally, each participant will be given a weekly $500 stipend.
