The program was developed to reinforce the interest of talented and underrepresented students in pursuing academic careers through graduate study. The Summer Research Initiative gives promising undergraduates the opportunity to experience hands-on research and to learn about graduate programs at the University of Maryland. Students in the program participate in a faculty-guided research project and a twice weekly seminar series, attend off-site visits to local research institutions, and present their research to the University of Maryland academic community in a poster session. Participating academic departments include Anthropology, Criminology & Criminal Justice, Geography, Government & Politics, Hearing & Speech Sciences, Psychology, and Sociology.
