Secondary Student Research Program


The School of Sciences Secondary Student Research Program (SSRP) is a paid summer research opportunity for high school students entering their junior or senior years the following fall.  Students are mentored under the direction of an AUM faculty member in Biology and Psychology.  Students will learn the basics of scholarly (library-based) research to establish the appropriate contexts for their investigations, and they will be trained technically in the performance of laboratory and/or field research.  Finally, they will present their work to the AUM academic community and other interested persons.  Students accepted into the program will be paid a stipend of $1,500 upon successful completion of the experience.  Links to the application materials may be found below.  Please contact the program coordinator, Dr. Pete Haddix, Associate Professor of Biology, at 334-244-3333 or phaddix@aum.edu with any additional questions or concerns.
