Graduate Summer Research Mentorship Program – Awardee Information

Expectations of Awardees

The GSRM Program is designed to provide financial support for UCLA doctoral students in the arts, humanities, social sciences, public health and nursing. It is also designed to release recipients from employment or loan obligations that might delay progress in graduate study. Awardees should consider it as their principal/primary summer activity.

GSRM awardees are expected to complete and submit a draft of a paper (either single-authored by the student or co-authored with the faculty mentor) by the end of the summer through the GSRM Program Evaluation. This paper should be submitted for presentation at a professional conference and/or for publication sometime during the following academic year (October-–June).

If the program evaluation and paper are not submitted by the end of the program, recipients will not be considered if applying for this fellowship in subsequent years.

GSRM awardees may not work more than 25% time. Should a post-audit discover appointment(s) above 25%, the GSRM stipend will be prorated and reduced accordingly (e.g., a 50% TA appointment for a six-week summer session will result in a reduction of the GSRM stipend by at least 46%––6 weeks of the 13 that should have been devoted to the GSRM activities were spent as a TA).

Expectations of Faculty Mentors

It is expected that the faculty mentor will be in frequent contact with the awardee during the summer and committed to working closely with the student.

Faculty mentors will be asked to submit an online program evaluation to the Graduate Division at the end of the program.
