The Kenyon/Ohio State University (OSU) Summer Research Program provides opportunities for students to work in close collaboration with faculty mentors from OSU as full participants in the processes of executing a research project and preparing results for presentation in a public forum. This program is funded by Kenyon College and the Ohio State University. It is open to students working with faculty members in biostatistics, epidemiology and statistics.
This partnership with OSU was created to provide summer research experiences for up to six qualified undergraduate students. Participants in this program will complete an 8 to 10 week research project with faculty members in the Divisions of Biostatistics and Epidemiology and the Department of Statistics on the OSU campus during the summer of 2018.
A brief description of the research projects for 2018 is provided in a separate attachment. Please read these descriptions carefully in order to identify the best possible matches for your qualifications.
A committee of Kenyon and Ohio State faculty and staff members will review the application materials and select up to six students for this opportunity. Priority will be given to rising seniors. Other desired qualifications include a strong academic record and research experience at Kenyon. The evaluation of applications will be quick, so if you are not selected for this program, there will be time to apply for other summer research programs.
You will be provided a $4000 stipend and assistance with housing costs for the summer.
