Project L/EARN Academic-Year Research

Many Project L/EARN interns continue working in research after the summer program. Some faculty mentors have several cohorts of interns participating in their research programs. Other mentors work with a single intern until graduation and then take on a new trainee. Through these ties, mentors develop an awareness of the student's interests and strengths. Many interns continue their own research agenda in the form of senior thesis or independent studies. The relationships established with faculty researchers facilitate an informal continuation of the students' training. These relationships have made it possible for faculty to increase the students' awareness of key opportunities, such as internships, fellowships and grant opportunities (e.g. minority supplements and Undergraduate Research Fellowships), as well providing guidance in the graduate school selection and application process.
