A summer GUROP fellowship is meant to be a closely mentored, full-time, intensive research experience. The expectation is a weekly time commitment of at least 30-40 hours extending over eight to ten weeks. The actual time spent might be much more depending on the field of research and the specific project. The GUROP project must be the primary focus of a student’s overall summer experience. Some students, however, may want or need to take a course or two, or find supplemental employment, neither of which is expressly prohibited, but would be acceptable only with the approval of the research mentor and the GUROP administrator.
