Description:
2015 Maryland Summer Scholars Program

Francis DuVinage, Director – Elizabeth Mackenzie Tobey, Coordinator –
http://www.ugresearch.umd.edu/
The Maryland Summer Scholars Program (MSS) provides an exciting opportunity
for undergraduate students to spend the summer working closely with faculty
mentors on ambitious research or artistic projects. Maryland Summer Scholars
research may take place in College Park or anywhere in the US or abroad as
required by the nature of the project.  For the summer of 2015, the program
will provide awards of $3,000 to approximately 30 outstanding, competitively
selected applicants. [Please note: if your proposed research requires travel
outside of the College Park area, you may apply for a supplementary travel
award of up to $1,000.]
Students who carry out Maryland Summer Scholars projects gain a competitive
edge when applying for graduate study, fellowships, employment and other
competitive opportunities. Many Summer Scholars turn their research into an
independent study or honors thesis during their junior or senior year.



Who can apply: You are eligible to apply if you will have completed at least
two full semesters (and 30 credits) by the end of Spring semester 2015, if
you have a GPA of at least 3.4 at the time of application, and if you will be
enrolled at the University of Maryland, College Park, in Fall 2015. All
academic majors are eligible.
Application Deadline: The deadline to apply for summer 2015 awards will be
midnight on Sunday, February 8, 2015. It is important that candidates begin
developing their proposals as soon as possible.
The Maryland Center for Undergraduate Research will hold numerous information
sessions about the summer 2014 MSS program. Please note: All information
sessions will be held in 2100 D in McKeldin Library. Please reply to
