Occidental College and Leiden University in The Netherlands maintain a summer exchange program which will permit one or two upper level students or recent graduates to travel to Leiden to do research in Chemistry or Biology.
Funds are provided for travel to and from Leiden and students who are selected to participate will receive a stipend. Accepted students are not required to pay tuition while at Leiden. Housing arrangements are made by Leiden University and housing is included in the program, although Occidental students will have to make a [refundable] room deposit. Meals and incidental expenses, along with costs for any extra travel are at the student's expense. Fellows will be expected to submit an abstract at the end of the summer for posting on OxyScholar. If possible, fellows should present their work at the Occidental College Summer Research Conference and at the fall SCCUR conference.
Applicants will need to choose several areas of interest from the Leiden Institute of Chemistry. Placement will be done by Leiden. Interested students should complete a Leiden Application along with a Summer Research application Cover Sheet. Application paperwork must be turned in to the URC office by 4 pm on February 11, 2014.
For additional information, please contact the URC office.
