> The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Office of Graduate Studies is  
> proud to announce the 2006 Summer Research Program. The Summer  
> Research Program (SRP) offers outstanding undergraduates from  
> groups historically underrepresented in graduate education first- 
> hand exposure to the experiences of graduate school and faculty  
> life by placing them with faculty whose work is closely related to  
> their academic interests and career goals.
>
> SRP Scholars work under faculty mentorship as part of a research  
> team that may include graduate students, research scientists, and  
> other program students. During the eight-week program, from June 5  
> - August 4, Scholars will master important research skills and  
> contribute to projects that are a vital part of the academic  
> experience and a foundation for advanced study, helping them  
> prepare for future graduate work. Program participants receive a  
> $3,500 stipend, travel expenses to and from Lincoln, room and board  
> for 8 weeks, and the opportunity to travel with their faculty  
> member to a research conference.
>
> Although many campuses host this kind of program, our curriculum  
> has several unique features that we feel will make a more  
> meaningful learning experience for our participants. We invite you  
> to explore our website at http://www.unl.edu/summerprogram/ and see  
> for yourself the Nebraska difference.
>
> Applications are currently available and are due no later than  
> February 15, 2006. We hope you will encourage your undergraduate  
> students to consider joining us this summer!
>
> If you have any questions about the Summer Research Program or need  
> any additional information, do not hesitate to contact me directly.  
> I would be happy to assist you or your students in any way that I can.
