Summer Research Academy (SRA) is a fast-paced, 3-day event in July. It is a 1-credit course (IDS 3913) that runs during Summer B term, but most of the work will be completed during the event in July. SRA is ideal for transfer students or current students who want to begin research in the fall.
SRA Peer Mentors work with small groups of 8 to 11 students during and after the SRA event. SRA Peer Mentors help with presentations during the event, meet with mentees, and help evaluate student assignments shortly after the event. Mentors receive a day of training to learn about the event and how to guide their mentees.
SRA Peer Mentors must have a current or recent research position. This is a paid position. Mentors are hired for approximately 40 hours from early July to early August. Deadline to apply as an SRA Peer Mentor is June 1st by 11:59 p.m.
