submitted by ricomem@augsburg.edu

Are you looking for a paid summer research opportunity here on campus? URGO applications for 2017 summer research are now available on the URGO website at www.augsburg.edu/urgo/. All fields of study welcome!

We have multiple summer opportunities available for students.

URGO Summer Research Program:
The URGO Summer Research Program is an 11-week, on-campus program where students are funded to conduct research with a faculty mentor. Students receive support throughout the research process from their faculty mentor, a Speaker Series, and weekly seminars with fellow researchers. URGO provides full-time summer researchers (400 hours) with a $4,000 stipend and housing discount while half-time researchers (200 hours) receive a $2,000 stipend. The program runs from May 15th – July 28th.

URGO Summer Research Assistantships:
URGO also provides funding for students to work for a professor as a research assistant on an ongoing research project. This is a 100-hour commitment over the course of the summer and comes with a $1,000 stipend. This is an excellent opportunity to try out research for the first time or focus on a specific aspect of a research project.

Phase 1 of the applications are due February 1st.

Call for Faculty Summa Committee Members

submitted by denkinge@augsburg.edu

The Faculty Summa Committee is seeking new members to facilitate panels for graduating seniors seeking the highest Latin honor, Summa Cum Laude. Along with a 3.9 or above GPA, these students meet for one hour with their advisor, a non-major faculty member, and a summa committee member to review a portfolio of their work and to reflect on their experiences at Augsburg. This is a unique opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of some of our most successful students, to meet faculty from outside your home department, and to contribute service to the college. Early-career faculty in particular will benefit from meeting new people and making interdisciplinary connections without onerous time commitments.
