Undergraduates looking to expand their interest in science teaching and communication are invited to apply to become an SLP Undergraduate Scholar. For one term, scholars work with a faculty mentor in a class that fits their scientific interests. Scholars get hands-on experience designing and leading class activities, mentoring fellow undergraduate students, and building teaching skills by collaborating with faculty and graduate students.
This program is a great resume booster, allowing students to build leadership, teaching, and communication skills around science teaching and communication.
The deadline to apply is August 15, 2018.
