June 1 - August 7, 2015; OARDC, 1680 Madison Ave, Wooster, OH 44691
The OARDC campus of the Ohio State University in Wooster will provide summer research internship opportunities for motivated incoming junior and senior high school students and undergraduate students at all levels. The OARDC Research Internships Program (ORIP) is tailored specifically to enhance student interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines by inculcating critical thinking skills through rigorous laboratory and field research experiences, seminars, group discussions and symposia. ORIP will increase student performance in school/college and competitiveness for scholarships, awards, and admissions to undergraduate/graduate schools. ORIP will run for 10 weeks from June 1 to August 7, 2015. The selected research scholars will be required to work for a minimum of 30 hours per week, but daily hours will be flexible. A stipend of $2,400 - $3,000 will be provided for the entire 10-week period depending upon the grade level and experience. Students may also make separate arrangements with their potential faculty mentors for additional employment. Applicants are encouraged to browse through the OARDC website (www.oardc.ohio-state.edu) to determine a potential faculty mentor. The program is targeted for local students who have their own transport, although non-local students may apply if they can make their own accommodation and transport arrangements. Minority and needy students will be given special preference if they request for such consideration.
