The SCRiM Summer Scholars Program enables selected undergraduates and early career graduate students to work on independent research projects under the mentorship and support of SCRiM researchers. Students in the SCRiM 2017 Summer Scholars program worked on their projects full-time for nine weeks in the summer. In order to allow the Summer Scholars to fully focus on their research, SCRiM provides each Scholar with a stipend and housing.
At the completion of the program, the Summer Scholars presented their work at a Research Poster Symposium, an event organized by Penn State’s REU in Climate Science, on Friday 4 August.
