Program and Application
Personal Statement: The personal statement should:
- address why you
would like to participate in this program, what you hope to gain from
it, and your eventual career goals,
- describe the type
of internship or research you plan to pursue in as much detail as possible,
including where you will be working and the goals of the organization,
your supervisor or contact person, and the dates of your internship,
and tell why you are interested in this field, and
- indicate how the
courses you've taken and plan to take are relevant to your particular
area of interest.
If you have an idea
about the field you'd like to work in, but don't have a specific internship
established, contact Kaye Edwards
(ph: 610-896-1191) to discuss your plans. She will assist you in setting
up an internship. This must be done BEFORE submitting your application
to the program.
Each Science and Society Scholar is expected to do a research project
or internship. Typically this internship will occur in the summer after
the junior year, or during the first semester of the senior year. There
are three ways in which this requirement may be fulfilled:
- You may request
funding from the program to carry out your research or internship. The
HHMI grant to Haverford College enables us to offer up to three full
stipends for the summer of 2003. If you are applying for one of these
stipends, please specify this in your application.
- You may arrange
an internship which is not funded by the HHMI grant. If you have applied
or will be applying for one of these stipends, please indicate which
funding sources and the date of the award decisions.
- You may pursue
your research or internship as an independent study during an academic
semester. This possibility might, for example, be combined with your
senior research project, if the Science and Society Committee and your
major department both consent.
