SUMMER SCHOLARS: Jun 3 - Aug 9 2019 

The GRAD-MAP Summer Scholars are selected from GRAD-MAP Winter Workshop alumni to participate in an enhanced summer research program meant to expand upon the experiences of the Winter Workshop -- i.e. research skill building, cohort facilitation, and science identity development -- through full research projects. For this summer, we have projects in the Astronomy and Physics departments at University of Maryland with Professor Alberto Bolatto, Professor Eliza Kempton, Professor Jordan Goodman, and Dr. Matthew Knight. Current topics are described below. This list will be updated as needed. 
Projects:
A radio-astronomy related project, possibly working with the EDGE-CALIFA dataset. -- Prof Alberto Bolatto
Generating input for models of exoplanet atmospheres. -- Prof Eliza Kempton 
Measuring the brightness and color behavior of comets observed very close to the Sun. -- Dr. Matthew Knight
Studying the highest energy gamma rays in Universe with HAWC. -- Prof Jordan Goodman 

Last Summer Scholars Program - 2018

The GRAD-MAP Summer Scholars are selected from GRAD-MAP Winter Workshop alumni to participate in an enhanced summer research program meant to expand upon the experiences of the Winter Workshop -- i.e. research skill building, cohort facilitation, and science identity development -- through full research projects. In the Summer of 2018, four students will work at the University of Maryland with Professor Suvi Gezari, Professor Alberto Bolatto, and Dr. Leo Singer.
