On behalf of Latin@s Gaining Access to Networks for Advancement in Science:
Looking for a paid research opportunity?
The Latin@s Gaining Access to Networks for Advancement in Science or L@S GANAS, is recruiting for its research fellowship. The details:
- Fellows must enroll in a seminar course for fall 2017. This seminar will be held on Wednesdays from 3-4:30. While mandatory, most work will be done in class and should not increase your outside of class workload.
- Successful completion of the seminar will result in being placed in a research lab with a faculty mentor. Fellows will work 8-10 hours a week.
- Beginning Spring 2018, fellows with a research placement will be eligible for up to a $2,500 per semester stipend based on financial need for a total of four semesters.
- During the fellowship research semesters, monthly meetings will be held for fellows.
L@S GANAS was created with a Hispanic Serving Institution STEM grant from the US Department of Education. L@S GANAS exists to ensure that Latinx students in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) succeed at UIC. It seeks to increase the number of Latinx professionals in the STEM field, provide financial assistance to Latinx students, increase retention of Latinx students in the STEM majors, and foster a community where Latinx students see their cultural heritage as an asset in the lab.
