Summer programs that pay a stipend

Know of any summer programs that pay a stipend?

Does TASP pay all attendees? or only the ones that document loss of income?
SRAP in WY was mentioned in another thread.
Any others?

I don’t think they pay stipend but the program can covers the loss of income.


"If you need, we can help pay for all or part of your travel costs to and from the program. We recognize that you may be expected to work a job, take care of younger siblings, and shoulder all sorts of other responsibilities over the summer to help your family: we can cover these expenses, too. "

Yes, I’d read that. I wonder if they assume everyone lost income or is it only for students who document it.

I believe it is for the student who document it. Anyway, they changed the words this year. Last year, it said up to $500. So the best way to know is to call them.

I attended SRAP in the summer after my junior year (2013), and, I must say, it was one of the best experiences of my life (not exaggerating). I believe application process involved test scores, an essay, and letters of rec. When/if you got in, you have to fill out quite a bit of paperwork, but it was all worth it. They paid for room and board, and I made $2000 (!!!). Plus there were weekend excursions to Denver (we stayed at a hotel overnight and went to the zoo and aquarium at no cost to us; they handled food too!) and a hiking trip in the mountains (got to see snow in summer). Evenings and weekends are your free time (I suggest exploring Laramie), and I still remain good/great friends with my fellow SRAPers to this day (they also went to some of the best schools in the nation, such as Yale, MIT, and Stanford; I attend UF on a full scholarship). You work/research 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, but the strenuousness of that schedule really depends on your research mentor. In the end, I wrote a 15-page paper and gave a presentation in front of fifty people. A great, relatively obscure program that pays both financially, academically, socially, and experientially!
