MIT Summer Research Program Seeks Diverse Candidates

The Summer Research Program at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) started in 1986 to address the underrepresentation of minority students, including Native Americans, in engineering and science fields in the United States.

According to, Dr. Sophia Inzunza, a Dr. Martin Luther King Postdoctoral Fellow at MIT, the program rarely receives applications from interested Native American students, and as a Native from the Coos, Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw tribes, Inzunza would like to see this change.

The program is meant for sophomores, juniors and non-graduating seniors who could benefit from spending a summer on the MIT campus, working in a research laboratory with experienced scientists and engineers.

“Students who participate in this program will be better prepared and motivated to pursue advanced degrees, thereby helping to sustain a rich talent pool in critical areas of research and innovation,” says the program website.

For more information visit the MIT Summer Research Program website, call 617-253-4860 or e-mail mit-srp@mit.edu.

Applications—available here—are accepted from mid-November through February 3.
