About SREP

The School of Social and Family Dynamics at Arizona State University is accepting applications for a summer program for underrepresented undergraduate students interested in gaining research experience for graduate school. Students participating in SREP 2008 will be mentored by a faculty member and a graduate student during an 8-week summer session. Applicants and faculty will be matched based on their research interests (click for faculty interests). SREP students will register for a 3-credit upper division seminar at ASU focused on professional development (e.g., applying to graduate school, taking the GRE, attending professional conferences), conduct a small research project based on the faculty mentor’s ongoing research, and prepare a poster for presentation of their research at the end of the 8-week session.

Accepted students will receive a financial package that includes:

  • Tuition for the 3-credit seminar
  • Roundtrip airfare to Tempe, AZ (for non-ASU students)
  • On-campus housing (for those needing housing)
  • A $1,500 stipend to cover meals, research, and miscellaneous expenses

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Sophomore or Junior standing during the Spring 2008
  • Be enrolled full-time in a 4-year college or university
  • Minimum of 3.0 Cumulative GPA
  • Demonstrate an interest in research with children, youth, and/or families (particularly those at-risk) and attending graduate school
  • Appropriate match with participating SSFD faculty
  • Be a member of a group that is underrepresented in graduate education in the social sciences such as racial and ethnic minorities, and first generation college students.
