Summer Fellows

The Sixteenth Annual Summer Fellows Research Symposium takes place on Friday, July 25, 2014. Review the schedule of presentations.

The application for the 2014 Summer Fellows program is now available. The deadline for application is February 14, 2014.

The Summer Fellows program at Ursinus allows you as a sophomore or junior to pursue an independent scholarly project under the close tutelage of a faculty mentor, when both you and the professor have more time to devote exclusively to research.

Your project can be undertaken as independent research or a creative or artistic endeavor, on or off-campus. You will do eight weeks of full-time study and receive a $2500 stipend and a room on campus.

Your faculty mentor will help shape and direct your project, and weekly common hour meetings are scheduled to bring all Summer Fellows and mentors together as an intellectual community. All fellows present their research during the last week of the program, and many fellows present at Family Day, Homecoming and at professional conferences off campus.

Summer Fellows and mentors can log through the UC Gateway to view more information, including archived issues of the Summer Fellows Gazette.
