Undergrad Native American Student Summer Program at Cameron--Apply Today!

Cameron University is providing a summer undergraduate science workshop for Native American students who are majoring in STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering, mathematics, computer science, and related fields).  The workshop will last for eight weeks and is scheduled from June 1, 2015 to July 24, 2015. Participants must commit to attend all workshop activities, which are scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday of each week, plus attend four all-day Friday field trips.

Participants will receive a stipend of $2,500 for completing all of the required activities, and at the conclusion of the workshop they will receive a laptop computer that is theirs to keep.

Participants will complete research projects that focus on three aspects of sustainability of resources in the face of ongoing global climate change, including: (1) water quality measurements, (2) analysis of microbial diversity, and (3) analysis of tree age and growth variation using techniques from dendrochronology.

The broad nature of the workshop will introduce participants to concepts in both the physical and life sciences, and will reinforce and improve quantitative and qualitative reasoning skills by teaching participants to gather, analyze, and interpret data.

Student applications are now being accepted and are due Wednesday, May 27, 2015.  The application form may be accessed here.  

Questions may be addressed to the Office of the Dean of the School of Science and Technology by calling (580) 581-2308.  

This workshop is supported by Oklahoma EPSCoR and the National Science Foundation under Grant No. IIA-1301789.
