This student-focused program aims to foster diversity by increasing the participation of underrepresented students in summer research and creative experiences in a wide range of disciplines. The program is extended, but not limited, to underrepresented minorities, women, first-generation college students, geographically underrepresented students, educationally or financially disadvantaged students, and students with disabilities.

The Fellowship program provides funds for a student to work collaboratively with a faculty member on a project in the arts, humanities, social sciences, STEM and health sciences (such as math, physics, geography, chemistry, computer/data science, engineering, environmental biology, nursing, optometry, pharmacy, public health). Student fellows work full time on a project with a faculty mentor over a 10-week period during the summer.

Applications for the 2025 Summer Student Fellowship will be made available in January. 
Notice of award is made early April.
