Graduate Division Welcomes Summer Research Scholars

ARC/SC scholars meet up with Roxanna Quach in Cheadle Hall Last week I had the opportunity to meet and greet several our summer researchers. Our summer researchers are a part of the California State University (CSU) Sally Casanova Program and the Academic Research Consortium (ARC). All of the summer researchers come from CSU and UC schools.

The ARC/Sally Casanova summer research scholars were admitted after a rigorous spring application process that included hundreds of submissions. Please refer to the Graduate Division ARC or Sally Casanova information pages for the application requirements if you, or anybody you know is interested in participating in future summer research programs.

During the application process the scholars submitted all required documents, as well as convinced a current UC Santa Barbara faculty member to sign on as their research advisor through the length of the summer research program. Now, many of us current graduate students realize how rigorous it is to fill out any application for admissions, let alone find a faculty mentor within a short period of time. After applications were reviewed all students were notified of their admissions status to the ARC/SC summer research program.

Those admitted to the program arrived for orientation on Monday, June 24 and received a walking campus tour on Tuesday morning. The ARC scholars began their weekly GRE workshop preparatory course on Wednesday morning, while both ARC and Sally Casanova scholars began their weekly resource and professional development training the following day. As you can tell, the ARC/SC scholars will be keeping themselves very busy this summer while at UC Santa Barbara.

Look more from the ARC/SC summer research scholars as we get to know them in the weeks to come!
