Paid Research Opportunity for Undergrads...would you do it?
Tuesday, January 22, 2013
Every once in a while I get inspired to do something completely out of character for me. This morning I woke up moving about as slow as a turtle. Yet, when I got an email from my college I suddenly became revived. There is a research opportunity for undergraduates being hosted at Virginia Tech. My major apparently could qualify for it. There is FREE room and food along with free parking pass (if you want to bring your car) and a $5000 stipend. I'm unsure how stipends work but it said it was in addition to the other things! I know this may sound completely crazy but I've NEVER gotten to go to a college where I could live on campus, share a room, or have any real feeling college experience.
The experience is called : Paid Summer Research Experience at Virginia Tech
The Reasearch would cover: approaches to understanding and preventing societal violence
Heres the catch, it would delay my graduation (im supposed to graduate in summer and it's a summer research opportunity)
It's 4.5 hours away
I may not get in
The Deadline is the 25th like 3 days away!
This is a what would you do question because I REALLY need advice,
I do not have a mom or dad to help me with this.
Love my grandparents but they are positive about..well..everything
Even if you have never had the chance to do this, I'm just wondering if given the opportunity, WOULD YOU?
Thanks in advance to all that help!!
