O.U.R. Summer Research Internship Program

The application period for the 2015 OUR Summer Research Internship Program has opened! We will provide funding for six undergraduate students to complete a summer internship working on a research or creative project with a John Jay College faculty member. The internships will pay roughly $3,000 over the course of the summer, and in return the student and faculty member will certify that the student will devote at least 200 hours of work as a research or creative assistant, attend three short monthly meetings, and present the details of their project and its results. All application materials must be received in the O.U.R. via hardcopy (08.66 NB) or email by 5:00pm on Friday, March 27, 2015.

A complete application by the student will include:

1.)  Application form see below.
2.)  Cover letter that serves as biographical statement emphasizing future plans.  A limit of one page will be strictly enforced.
3.)  Curriculum Vita or Resume
4.)  John Jay transcript (unofficial is okay)
5.)  Description of the research project.  A limit of 750 words will be enforced. This should be co-authored by the student and the faculty mentor. IRB application/approval must be included for projects that involved human subjects.
6.)  Letter of recommendation from the faculty research/creative mentor (adjunct faculty are not eligible). This can be submitted in a signed-sealed envelope, or directly by the faculty member to OUR@jjay.cuny.edu
7.)  Mentoring statement and plan (if applying for the research mentoring assistantship), co-authored by the faculty mentor. Must be at least 250 words, not more than 500 words.
