K-State Research and Extension Research Fellowship Program
The K-State Research and Extension (KSRE) Research Fellowship program is a multicultural undergraduate and graduate summer research program for members of ethnic minority groups and other under-representative groups. Students are paired faculty in research projects that match a student's interests. Faculty and other members of the research team are committed to working closely with students to train them in research techniques as well as to meeting regularly with students to discuss projects and progress. Students can also attend summer classes on research ethics and compliance. In addition, students attend weekly seminars with other KSRE fellows to learn more about the demands of graduate school. At the end of the program, students are expected to present an oral presentation at the program Finale gathering.
The College of Agriculture Diversity Program Office serves as a key recruitment force for students in Agriculture and for the KSRE Research Fellowship program. You can incorporate the KSRE Research Fellowship program by becoming a mentor and by including funds to support one or more students in this program.
