Thank you for your interest in the University of Maryland’s Summer Research Initiative (SRI). This summer program is supported by the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences and the University of Maryland, College Park. 

Due to restrictions related to social distancing, interruptions in and concern over air travel, and most importantly, worldwide efforts to help stop the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), we have decided to host the  BSOS SRI for the summer of 2021 virtually.

We deeply regret the lost opportunity for you to engage in an enriching summer of research in-person at Maryland, however, your health and the public’s health was our biggest concern when we made this decision. 

Please direct any questions or concerns to Wanda Hauser at bsossri [at] umd [dot] edu
