Support for this NAU Psychology Department Summer Research Internship experience has been generously provided by the National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates program, by the NAU Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, the Vice President for Research, the Dean of the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, and the Department of Psychology. Each student intern receives a $4000 stipend for the 8-week summer research internship, a room and board allowance in an NAU dormitory, a $550 laboratory allowance for purchasing of research supplies, equipment, travel, etc., a travel allowance to Flagstaff at the beginning of the internship and back home at the end, partial conference travel support, and occasional picnics, lunches, and cultural expeditions around Northern Arizona. And new with this cycle of funding, each summer, two (2) interns will be invited to continue their research program at NAU and to enroll at NAU for the following academic year and to receive a Research Fellowship of $2000. Of course, with Flagstaff, Arizona being a highly desired national vacation spot and a cool summer paradise with 9 national monuments and parks (including, of course, the Grand Canyon of the Colorado River) within 75 miles, hundreds of miles of hiking, running, and mountain biking trails immediately available on the outskirts of town, and the tallest peak in Arizona (Mt. Humphreys at 12,633’) serving as a backdrop for the summer research experience, one of the most enjoyable benefits is simply spending the summer in beautiful Flagstaff, Arizona!
