Katherine E. Pope Summer Fellowship Application Due March 11

By Erin Shatara

The Katherine E. Pope Summer Fellowship was established in the memory of Katherine E. Pope, an undergraduate student at Smith College in Massachusetts, who was working at SLAC under the direction of her physics advisor. Pope was tragically killed in July 2001, while riding a bicycle on her way to SLAC.

This fellowship remembers Pope and encourages other undergraduates with an interest in science, especially physics, to pursue their academic interest at SLAC. The Pope Summer Fellowship will provide transportation to and from SLAC, a $500 per week stipend, and lodging for the time of the appointment.

Eligibility for the Katherine E. Pope Fellowship requires the following:
• Be an undergraduate student in one of the institutions whose faculty and students are participating in the research program at SLAC.
• Must be authorized to work as documented by completion of the Immigration Naturalization Services (INS) I-9 forms.
• Be available for a summer internship lasting for up to three months from June through August.
• Must have a sponsor for a summer project who is a SLAC user.
• Must have completed at least one year of undergraduate study prior to starting the internship.
• Must have a cumulative college GPA of 2.5 or higher.
• Preference will be given to students with a project in experimental particle physics but will not be confined to physics majors. Applications can be found at:
