North Carolina State University is located in the beautiful city of Raleigh and is right next to the world famous Research Triangle Park. It is well known for its research in the areas of biotechnology, agricultural, environmental an biomedical engineering, physics and veterinary sciences.

This announcement is an invitation for qualified and interested students, from our strategic partner schools, to pursue the idea of studying and performing research under a faculty mentor at NC State through a five-week GEAR Program. This Program will:

1) Introduce students to different aspects of research (planning experiments, managing time, ethical issues, summarizing results, and presentation skills)
2) Introduce students to mentors that can make a big difference in their future academic development
3) Support students as they determine if they are truly interested in pursuing a graduate degree that involves research
4) Enable students to work on projects of interest while gaining cross-cultural experiences
5) Help students meet distinguished individuals at the University, and make contacts that can last a lifetime
6) Provide cultural excursions and weekend trips to learn more about life at a U.S. university and U.S. culture
