Congratulations to Gregory Fultz for being the recipient of our Summer Research Internship Program over the summer! What is our Summer Research Internship Program (SRIP)?? SRIP is a donor-funded initiative designed to provide students with a stipend which allows them to spend a summer on campus working closely with a faculty member on a research project. A pledge of $6,000 provides a direct stipend to students for the summer, allowing them to focus on their research project and the skills that can only be developed through an intensive, hands-on experience, working in the lab directly with our faculty.
“For future students at Mount Saint Mary’s University, I would highly recommend spending a summer side by side with one of their professors to strengthen their laboratory skills” Gregory wrote in his reflection letter about the program. Undergraduate research is a key component in the competitiveness of our graduates for acceptance into the best medical schools and graduate programs in the country. Our faculty benefit as well, by advancing their research programs and raising the profile of the Mount as a center of excellence in the sciences. A big thank you and congratulations goes out to Gregory Fultz in all his hard work!
