Summer Scholarship, Creative Arts and Research Program

The Summer Scholarship, Creative Arts and Research Program has been created to support independent student research under the sponsorship of a faculty mentor. The program is a non-credit experiential learning program designed to enhance professional skills and provide a competitive advantage to participating students in the pursuit of career opportunities and graduate studies. At the same time, participating faculty scholars and researchers will benefit from student involvement in support of professional scholarship and research agendas.

For participating in the program, students will receive a training stipend, room and board for the duration of their projects (from 3 to 10 weeks), and a professional experience as part of a scholarship/research community. They will also benefit from highly personalized mentoring from active researchers and scholars.
