Each year, the program offers a small number of stipends to allow some URAP apprentices to continue work on their mentors' research projects over the summer. To be eligible, students must have been working with the same mentor for at least two semesters. Mentors nominate their students. These stipends are generously supported by a number of private donors.

Summer 2017

Maricruz Pool-Chan : Ethnic Studies

Mentor: Patricia Baquedano Lopez, Education

The research project focuses on migrants that return to Yucatan, Mexico. Specifically, it looks at their experiences in schools and with their families once they begin living in their hometowns. Through these experiences, the research will help us understand return migration in Mexico and transnational migration in the United States.

Message to Sponsor:

Thank you for giving me this opportunity to be able to conduct research. Getting this award is allowing me to reconnect with my roots and to better understand the experiences of my family as migrants. Additionally, it has helped me to create a network of incredible people abroad and inspiring me to conduct my own research in the near future.
