Summer Research Fellowships

About

The Klingler College of Arts and Sciences will offer up to four undergraduate summer research fellowships to undergraduate students, in the amount of $3,500 each, for faculty mentored research projects to be performed between May 20 and August 16, 2019.  In most cases the research will be performed on Marquette's campus, but residence at Marquette is not required, and students can do research projects in other parts of the country or abroad. Awardees will present their research projects at the College Undergraduate Research Fair to be held in collaboration with the Honors Program during the 2019 fall semester.

Eligibility for fellowships

The four Klingler College of Arts and Sciences Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships will be awarded on a competitive basis. To be considered for the stipends, all students must have Marquette faculty mentors who agree to supervise their projects. To be eligible, students must be pursuing their primary major in the College of Arts and Sciences and applications are welcomed from the humanities, sciences, and social sciences. Research in the Math, Statistics and Computer Sciences, or Biological Sciences Summer Research Programs (or other summer research programs at Marquette) is appropriate for these stipends.

The application deadline has passed.
