What is Calit2?
UCSD Calit2 is a non-academic university research unit where researchers from different disciplines come together to study and develop new technology to address needs and issues in our economy and society.
The UCSD Calit2 Summer Undergraduate Research Scholar Program provides college students with the opportunity to perform hands-on research under the guidance of a UCSD faculty advisor over a 10-week period. The student can either assist in an ongoing research project or propose a new project.
Students will attend weekly seminars to learn more about applying to and preparing for graduate school, funding opportunities for research, connecting with current UCSD graduate students, career opportunities in academia and industry, and making good scientific presentations. All participants will display the results of their research efforts at a poster session at the end of the program a Certificate of Merit will be awarded.
For examples of a typical program schedule, see our current on-line calendars here (2010 Calendar).
