Summer Research Apprentice Program (SRAP)
Gain experience, do research and work on water resource management problems with hydrologists, ecosystem scientists, hydrologists and others this summer! Participate in a six-week program working side-by-side with specialists in the field and lab conducting water modeling and simulations to solve western water management issues.
SRAP is the Summer Research Apprentice Program at the University of Wyoming and is sponsored by Wyoming EPSCoR through the National Science Foundation. SRAP was designed in 1985 to recruit first generation college bound high school students, minority students and females into college and more specifically the STEM fields (Science Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). SRAP is an intense six week program open to high school students who have finished their sophomore, junior, and/or senior year of high school at the time of application. Students are paired with mentoring faculty in the STEM fields and participate in hands-on research in cutting edge STEM disciplines. SRAP is an all-expense paid program: room, board and stipend are included.
During these six weeks, students will participate in team building activities, college perpetration sessions and weekend adventures. Students will gain a sense of what college is like by living on campus and working with the Universities professors and graduate students. Throughout the program, students will end with a research paper, poster and power point presentation.
