Wharton Social Impact Research Experience (WSIRE)

Application Deadline

February 8, 2022

The Wharton Undergraduate Division will offer up to ten grants to support undergraduate research that promotes both economic and social value either domestically or abroad. Projects will be designed and carried out by the students under the guidance of some of Wharton’s preeminent faculty members. Students’ projects will culminate in oral presentations and written research papers that will be posted on ScholarlyCommons@Penn.

In addition to receiving a stipend of $3,000, participants will be reimbursed for approved travel and lodging expenses up to $3,000. While engaged in the research program, participants are expected to spend the equivalent of at least 20 hours per week over a two-month period (and not accept alternative employment exceeding 20 hours per week or take more than one concurrent summer course).
