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.
Departmental or other non-CURF-administered grants and programs
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.
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.
Summer Undergraduate Program for Educating Radiation Scientists
The 2021 SUPERS program will begin June 7th 2021 and end August 13th 2021.
Step Into Penn’s Fast-Paced World of Technology-Based Research
Interest in environmental health and the need for increased research in this field has steadily grown during the past decade. To address this need, the University of Pennsylvania has received an NIEHS award for summer internships for selected undergraduate students (the Short Term Educational Experiences for Research or STEER grant, formally known as the Penn Undergraduate Environmental Health Scholars Program).
