Several resources on the PathwaysToScience.org website that may be useful if you are planning development activities for undergraduate summer research students.

"STEM Fellowship Applications and Personal Statements" -- with guest speakers from NSF and the EPA!
This webinar recording features Dr. Joerg Schlatterer with the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program, and Dr. Brandon Jones, with the EPA fellowship programs. This is a great resource for independent study or group discussion. Students can view the webinar recording and associated professional development handouts.
Preparing for Graduate School Resource Toolbox:
This collection of handouts helps students understand the graduate school application process and provides tips and strategies related to finding suitable programs and completing successful applications.
Getting Strong Letters of Recommendation Handout:
We often get questions from students who are nervous about approaching recommenders for letters. This handout helps prepare undergraduate students to get strong letters for their graduate application packages.
Enhancing your Fellowship Application Handout:
