The Hassenfeld Grant for Undergraduate Research in Urban Studies
Application DeadlineMay 15, 2020
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. Often, the research question that students pursue arises from the internships they complete in URBS300: Fieldwork Seminar during spring junior year. Students write a theory-practice essay for the seminar that identifies a significant question for future research.
