Summer Fellows

Summer Fellowships ranging from $300-1500 will be awarded by the Undergraduate Research Program for the summer. Funds awarded will be deposited into student’s bank account, and are considered taxable income, although no taxes are withheld by the University for U.S. citizens. These awards are intended to provide partial support for undergraduate researchers who have been working on projects during the academic year who would like to continue research in the summer or wish to begin projects that will continue in next academic year. Summer Fellowship holders may combine research with summer courses, summer jobs, and/or summer volunteer activities.  For questions please contact the Undergraduate Research Program.

The 2021 Summer Fellows Application will open on April 19th, 2020 and will close on May 3rd, 2021 at 5:00pm.

Application Materials Will Include:

  • The number of weeks you expect to devote to the project during the summer
  • The average number of hours per week you expect to devote to your research project this summer
  • Whether or not you plan on holding a job or taking a class this summer in addition to doing research
  • A letter of recommendation from the faculty mentor who has agreed to sponsor your research
