Dr. Oscar Jerome Stewart (OSSI director) and I are seeking your help to recruit students for this academic year's Shawn Long Organizational Science Summer Institute (OSSI) program!
Below is more information about OSSI. If you could send this along to your professional and personal networks and to any students who you think might qualify, that would be great. The attached flyer also provides additional information.
What is OSSI?
OSSI is a three-day, in-person research-intensive program that is sponsored by the Organizational Science PhD program at University of North Carolina Charlotte, every summer. The goal is to foster undergraduate interest and ability in research and scholarship and help students to develop a competitive application for graduate school.
OSSI targets underrepresented racial/ethnic (e.g., Black/African-American, Hispanic/Latino, American Indian or Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander) undergraduates who are interested in pursuing graduate school in topics related to work and organizations.
Specifically, our program primarily seeks out students with an interest in organizational communication, management, I/O psychology, and organizational sociology (although we are open to other disciplines that align with an interest in organizational phenomena).
The mission of OSSI is to help diversify the pipeline for graduate education. To reach this mission:
When is OSSI?
May 15-18th, 2022 (In-person)
When is the application deadline?
All student applications consist of an online application form, two brief 500 word essays, and a recommendation form. These materials must be submitted online by 11:59pm on Jan 31st, 2022! See our website for more info on how to apply: https://ossi.uncc.edu/
Note: Participants will also receive a small monetary stipend. We will also cover travel-related expenses, housing, and food.
Please feel free to forward this email to specific students (ideally, juniors and seniors) who are interested in the study of organizations and graduate school and/or send this information to other faculty who may be able to notify specific students.
Please let me or Dr. Stewart know if you have any questions (email@example.com). Thank you all for your help with this program. We appreciate it!
