Department of Political Science hosts WUSTEPS, a new summer pipeline program.
The Washington University in St. Louis (WUSTL) WUSTEPS program prepares undergraduates from diverse backgrounds for political science PhD programs. WUSTEPS offers an opportunity for prospective graduate students to train with leading political scientists at WashU as they prepare for their own graduate school journey.
The free six-week research program takes place this year from May 22nd to June 30th. Students are paired with faculty mentors to explore their research interests and contribute to active and meaningful projects. Students also receive introductory training in research methods as well as participate in professionalization seminars to prepare them for graduate school. Participants receive on-campus housing provided at no cost, a $4000 honorarium for participation in the WUSTEPS program, as well as one-on-one mentoring and guidance.
Professor Sunita Parikh, Professor Dan Butler, and Professor Matthew Hayes lead as co-directors of the program; Amaan Charaniya, a third-year graduate student, serves as Graduate Coordinator for the program.
