Students are required to abide by general university regulations and conduct guidelines and to attend and fully participate in all MAP activities. Residence hall (dormitory) supervisor(s) will live on the same floor, enforce the MAP curfew and will conduct periodic room checks. Apprentices are NOT allowed to drive, ride in, or ride on, motorized vehicles nor leave Bozeman at any time during the program, unless they are participating in an official program activity or they have received prior written permission from parents/guardians and the MAP Summer Program Coordinator. Any violations of these regulations will result in immediate suspension from the program. Detailed conduct guidelines and responsibilities will be distributed to participants during orientation.
Apprentices will work primarily with an MSU research scientist in a research laboratory. Approximately 50% of the work week will be spent participating in pre-college classroom-like interaction. The remaining 50% will be spent working on a research project. Apprentices will be expected to make an informal seminar presentation to other summer participants. Recreational activities are a part of the six-week program and are scheduled for most weekends.
