CPC’s Summer 2015 Undergraduate Intern Research program begins Tuesday, May 26th

Every summer, the Carolina Population Center welcomes undergraduate interns who learn about and conduct population research. To develop their research question and methodology, the interns work with CPC Fellows who are also UNC-Chapel Hill faculty members. A couple of the interns are also mentored by CPC postdoctoral scholars.  This program exposes these students to population research and encourages underrepresented undergraduates to consider graduate training with a focus on population sciences.

The interns will present their research findings at the Undergraduate Intern Research Symposium on Friday, July 24th. The Symposium will be held at the Carolina Population Center.
