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.
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.
Grants from The Sachs Program for Arts Innovation support innovative arts activities throughout the Penn community, providing funding to Penn students, faculty, staff, departments, programs, and centers. There are currently two funding streams available to students:
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).
The Amici Prize was established in 1993 by a group of donors to provide an award to an undergraduate student for independent study in Italy, as designated by the director of the Center for Italian Studies.
Wharton SPUR provides a group of up to 10 students an opportunity to design and perform in-depth research over a 10-week period in the summer under the guidance of Wharton faculty members.
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.
For students who are underrespresented minorities only:
Research Supplements — Faculty with NIH grants use these funds to hire undergraduate researchers. The site allows students to search for faculty by discipline, as well as providing the information needed for faculty with NIH grants to sign up.
