Student Accepted to Research Experience for Undergraduates in Ukraine

Elizabeth Hilton (PSY) applied and was selected to participate in a summer REU (research experience for undergraduates) sponsored by the National Science Foundation. The program takes place from May 18 โ€“ July 28, 2017. She will receive a $5,000 stipend, free housing and all travel costs will be covered. The program goals are :

  • A two-week long international, onsite (in Ukraine) component to develop and maintain a working collaboration with the staff of KIIS, as well as to increase the cultural, political, and social awareness of the undergraduate students, which can have a large impact on the conceptualization and understanding of mental health,
  • Undergraduate students working closely alongside students with different disciplinary expertise (e.g., psychology and statistics) to participate in all aspects of the research process (e.g., develop research questions, carry-out related literature review and iterative data analysis and disseminate research findings), while under the close mentorship of an interdisciplinary team of well-qualified, faculty undergraduate research mentors for eight-weeks in the United States.
