Subject: Reminder: 2016 Maryland Summer Scholars Program
MARYLAND CENTER FOR UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH – 2016 Maryland Summer Scholars
Francis DuVinage, Director – Jacquelyn De La Torre, Coordinator –
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 2016, the program
will provide awards of $3,000 to approximately 25 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 2016, if
you have a cumulative 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
2016. All academic majors are eligible.
Application Deadline: The deadline to apply for summer 2016 awards will be
midnight on the evening of Monday, February 8, 2016. It is important that
candidates begin developing their proposals as soon as possible.

applications can be found on the MCUR website at:
