BTRUE Summer Fellows Program
May - August 2024
The B-TRUE (Baylor Transdisciplinary Research Undergraduate Experience) program is sponsoring 10 undergraduate fellows to conduct summer research in one of six academic programs (Biology, Physics, Chemistry/Biochemistry, Environmental Science, Geosciences, Anthropology, and Psychology/Neuroscience).
B-TRUE is an intensive 10-week summer research-training program for students interested in pursuing research-related careers. The program is designed to provide a rigorous, in-depth research experience across the life and physical sciences. B-TRUE will also prepare participants for top-quality graduate programs. B-TRUE offers a summer stipend, is only for Baylor undergraduates, and is non-residential (i.e., does not offer housing).
B-TRUE fellows will:
Conduct independent research with outstanding training program faculty mentors
Work in a cutting edge science and technology environment
Gain exposure to research topics in both physical and life sciences
Receive career counseling and develop career interests
Participate in workshops, seminars and journal clubs
Build a social network with student peers and faculty across scientific disciplines
Receive a $4,000 stipend
Priority will be given to rising sophomores and juniors.
B-TRUE selects fellows based on academic achievement, leadership, and commitment to a research-related career. The program includes weekly lectures and workshops. The program also provides training in scientific writing and poster preparation and presentation. B-TRUE culminates with a presentation at the Baylor Summer Research Symposium.
