If you're interested in combining your passion for science with exploration of a new culture, you should consider applying to the
2018 SRA Abroad. Even if you don't speak another language, your prior research knowledge and the fact that most research groups
conduct their work in English means that you could have an incredible experience for your professional development and growth as
a scientist or engineer
Eight students from LSAMP partner schools will be selected for the eight-week long program that takes place abroad each summer.
The students prepare to go abroad as a group through participation in a spring 2018 seminar via videoconference from their
respective campuses. This seminar prepares participants for both the scientific and cultural components of the program. For the
summer, students are placed in individual, independent research experiences in labs or research groups at institutions abroad. Ideally,
participants are paired by location/city in order to share accommodations, although they will not necessarily be placed in the same
lab or even at the same institution. The primary focus in summer will be participating in research, but students will also be required
to blog about their time abroad, writing about what they're learning both in and out of the lab. Upon their return to the U.S., SRA
Abroad students will be invited to participate, all expenses paid, in the annual UT System Student Research Conference that takes
place each September.
To apply, visit the UT System LSAMP web page at: http://lsamp.utep.edu. Applications for the SRA Abroad must be submitted online
via the link at the above website. The application deadline is Monday, October 16, 2017. On-line recommendation from your
research supervisor is also due Monday, October 16, 2017.
