The Hassenfeld Grant for Undergraduate Research in Urban Studies

The Hassenfeld Grant for Undergraduate Research in Urban Studies strengthens the opportunity for students to conduct research on a significant urban topic, a cornerstone of Penn's Urban Studies Program. Since its inception, the program has required all majors to complete an original research project through the fall semester Senior Seminar.

Hayden Scholars

Given the significant uncertainty about University research operations under COVID-19, we cannot be assured that the Hayden Scholars program will go forward or under what conditions it might operate. This decision will be based on guidance from the University when we receive it. However, we would like to be ready to proceed in the event that we can. Applications for the Hayden Scholars program will be accepted on a rolling basis with no deadline. We will review applications when we know that the program will proceed, and communicate to all applicants when the review will begin.

Summer Humanities Internships

Each year the College of Arts and Sciences and CURF fund approximately twenty-five summer research internships for University of Pennsylvania students in the humanities and social sciences. Internships provide undergraduates with the opportunity to work in a cultural, historical, or archival setting.  These full-time (35 hrs/week) internships are for a period of ten weeks and include a financial award of $4,500. The award will be disbursed in two equal installments on June 30 and August 31.

Undergraduate Clinical Scholars Program (UCSP)

The UCSP is a 9-week rigorous summer research enrichment program. The program is open to students from any accredited university in the United States and is designed specifically for undergraduate students with an interest in clinical/epidemiologic research, with an eventual goal of MD, PhD, or MD-PhD degrees. Preference will be given to non-graduating college students.  At this time, we are not accepting graduate or post-baccalaureate students.

South Asia Center Research Internships

The South Asia Center (SAC) is pleased to announce new research internship placements in South Asia for Summer 2019. Students will be able to work on a project of their own design with the aid of a local mentor in South Asia, or can choose to volunteer with an organization devoted to work in a particular field (see sample topics below).
