Undergraduate Summer Research Opportunities for Academic Year 2012-2013
If you have found a field of study that you are passionate about, consider participating in an original research project that takes you beyond the classroom and regular course assignments and creates new knowledge that you can present at a local or national performance or exhibition, a regional or national conference or even publish in a scholarly journal.
The Creighton College of Arts and Sciences currently offers three different types of undergraduate awards, open to full-time Arts and Sciences students. Each of these scholarships is highly competitive, and students must find a full-time Creighton University faculty member who will agree to sponsor their research. Each award includes a stipend for the student, a small expense budget, and an honorarium for the faculty sponsor. Scholarship recipients will be required to present the results of their research in an on-campus forum scheduled for Fall 2013.
