Summer Internship Opportunity - University of Virginia

We’re looking forward to our fifth year of the Summer Undergraduate Research Program in Educational Psychology: Applied Developmental Science & Education Policy in Summer 2012. Our internship program is designed to encourage students from groups traditionally underrepresented in the field of education research to consider careers in academic, policy, or research organizations. We have had wonderful students participate over the past few years, all of whom came highly recommended by faculty such as you. These students have spent 8 weeks at UVA engaged in ongoing research projects in the education sciences under the mentorship of our faculty and graduate students and participating in workshops, lab meetings, conferences, and social events. We are writing now to request your help as we prepare for Summer 2012. Could you please let your colleagues and current 3^rd year students know about our program? Below is a description of our program, feel free to forward it to anyone who may be interested. If you have any questions about our programs or any suggestions of other ways to reach students at your institution, please let me know. We greatly appreciate your help and look forward to another successful summer.
