Students interested in doing summer break scientific research at other institutions should be aware of Carleton's Robert J. Kolenkow and Robert A. Reitz Fund for Undergraduate Research. Created by a donor, and honoring Carleton former professors Kolenkow and Reitz, the fund supports student research. Up to ten students in the natural sciences and mathematics will be supported summer break 2012, with each student receiving funds not to exceed $4200. Funding is available to Carleton international students. Support could take the form of a stipend, travel funds, housing, etc., and it could be used to supplement financial support offered by a sponsor at another institution if the student demonstrates that the sponsor's contribution is insufficient. If interested, submit an application by Feb 16 identifying a sponsor at another institution, a brief description of research plans with your specific role, and a budget paragraph justifying requested funds. Decisions about funding will be made before Spring Break. More information about the Robert J. Kolenkow and Robert A. Reitz Fund and the online application form can be found at: http://serc.carleton.edu/cismi/students/KolenkowReitz.html.
