GSDO Summer Research Institute

2016 Summer Institute Students

The Graduate School Diversity Office (GSDO) Summer Institute provides seven weeks of research opportunity for newly-admitted graduate students.  Priority is given to recipients of the DOVE fellowship. In-coming graduate students of color who are awarded fellowships through their college or department can also participate in the Summer Institute, with approval from the Director of Graduate Studies. In addition to conducting research, students attend weekly seminars on issues pertinent to the graduate experience. Each student receives a $4,000 stipend which is provided by the student's graduate program or department. As part of participating in the Summer Institute, participants mentor or tutor junior high school students during the spring semester of their first year.
