University of Delaware - Undergraduate Research Scholars Program

Details

Category: Summer

Eligibility

Participation in the summer program is restricted to undergraduate students enrolled in U.S. institutions. The program is intended for students with a strong desire to pursue research careers at the Ph.D. level.

Preference is given to students completing their sophomore or junior years.

Description

The UD Undergraduate Research Scholars Program provides summer research opportunities for college students who are not currently enrolled at the University of Delaware. The program is designed to prepare, motivate, encourage, and support students who want to learn more about the graduate school experience and possibly pursue an academic or research career. As a scholar in this program, you will spend 10 weeks on the University of Delaware campus in the summer of 2020, immersed in a research project where you will work closely with faculty, graduate students and postdoctoral researchers. You will also learn first-hand about graduate programs at the University of Delaware and develop a valuable network of contacts who can support and assist you in applying to graduate school. The program will provide a stipend, as well as housing and round-trip transportation.
