Research Opportunity for Grad Students
The Association of American Medical Colleges is pleased to announce the 11th Annual Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) Graduate Student Research Program, and SIOP student members are encouraged to apply.
Up to three outstanding graduate students in the fields of educational measurement, psychometrics, or a related field, such as industrial–organizational psychology, will be selected to participate in the research program this summer. Eligible applicants must have completed at least 2 years of related graduate study.
Applications for the 2008 MCAT Graduate Student Research Program must be received by March 3, and successful candidates will be informed by March 17.
The program is designed to give each researcher an opportunity to develop professional skills through collaboration on a research project with a mentor from the researcher’s home university and the MCAT research staff.
It includes two one-day visits to the MCAT office located in Washington, D.C. The first visit will be an orientation to the research program in May. The second visit will occur in September, following completion of the research project, and will include a formal presentation to MCAT staff and other researchers.
Each researcher will receive a stipend of $6,000. In addition, the cost of travel and accommodations will be covered for the two MCAT office visits. Reimbursements will also be given for incidental travel expenses and other expenditures such as office supplies.
