GEH LAB offers a unique summer research and capacity building programs for graduate students and professionals. There are 3 phases to our research internships:
1. Preparation (e.g. research development, pre-departure training, logistics and travel planning);
2. Field Training, 3 weeks in selected country (e.g., engaging with local professors, teaching, research);
3. Dissemination (e.g. presentations to local and international stakeholders).
Dates: 3 weeks between late June - early August (TBD)
These summer research programs are designed to build capacity for our local partners at universities in selected countries and build the capacity of all participants. If you participate fully in the research opportunity and writing activities of this program, GEH LAB can help you submit your work for presentation and publication, and build your CV. The program encompasses much more than the weeks we spend in the field as the projects and collaborations are ongoing. Although it is not required, all of our past participants in research internships have worked with GEH LAB for at least 6 months.
Academic credit for our summer research programs is available through Northern Illinois University (tuition fees apply).
