Q: Can I also work at a part-time job during SUMRY, take a summer course, work as a summer session counselor or R.A., travel to another summer research activity during SUMRY, etc.?
A: No. SUMRY is a full time summer program. While we understand that there may be other programs you’re interested in, you should not be involved in other programs, classes, or research opportunities, even if part time.
Q: I need to be out of town for a few days during SUMRY due to a prior commitment. Is this okay?
A: Within reason, yes, if you bring this to our attention before the start of the program to discuss. If you plan to be away for more than 2-3 weekdays, this will require special consideration. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org immediately (before the start of the program) if you anticipate an absence, of any length of time at all, listing the dates and reason for the absence.
Q: When will I receive my SUMRY stipend, and how much will I receive?
A: The SUMRY student stipends are $3400 for the summer of 2015. Our aim is to distribute the funding as soon as possible before the start of SUMRY. We will update you with more precise information when it becomes available.
Q: I am interested in rooming with other SUMRY participants over the summer. Can you help?
A: Sure. If you’re interested in this, email email@example.com by April 30th with the subject line “roommate”. We will then put you in contact with one another to make further plans among yourselves.
