Summer Scholars Program

Supporting students engaged in creative inquiry, research, and scholarship projects STUDENT APPLICATIONS FOR SUMMER 2024 ARE NOW CLOSED.

Program Overview

Through the program, scholars have transformative experiences in a variety of research, scholarship, and creative inquiry projects. Some students design their own independent projects, others participate in ongoing faculty-led research projects in the field or in the lab.

Competitive applicants are students who are passionate about their studies and are ready for an experiential opportunity in their field.

The standard wage for summer 2023 is $4,800 (tentative) for 8 weeks of full-time work (37.5-40 hours/week) on their projects beginning on May 29. In addition to pursuing their project work, scholars have opportunities to get together with other scholars and mentors in the program to share ideas and experiences.
