The Summer Program to Increase Diversity in Undergraduate Research (SPIDUR) in North Carolina’s Urban Research University is for high-achieving under-represented, first generation, or disabled undergraduate students, providing research experience and professional development training in their field of interest.
In addition to mentored research activities, scholars participate in weekly professional development training to build skills critical to professional success. Topics include: responsible conduct of research, developing a competitive research fellowship application, preparing an academic resume, professional communication tools, and a session on preparing for graduate school.
Summer scholars receive a stipend of $4000 for the 8 weeks (May 31 to July 26) of the program. Housing will be provided, but space is limited. Travel to UNC Charlotte is not supported by the program. For further information, please contact email@example.com. The Charlotte Research Scholars are sponsored by the Division of Academic Affairs, Graduate School, and Charlotte Research Institute.
Eligibility: Undergraduates must have a minimum GPA of 2.8, and between 50 and 90 credit hours by the end of spring 2018. Students who graduate in spring 2018 are NOT eligible for the program – candidates must be enrolled in an undergraduate program from an institution other than UNC Charlotte to be eligible for SPIDUR.
