Summer Research Partnerships offer students the opportunity to collaborate with faculty and other students to pursue a research or creative project that produces a tangible result (publication, presentation, performances, and so on). Monetary stipends for summer research projects are funded by the Shepard K. Halsch Endowment for undergraduate research. Students have from May 15 – August 1, 2023 to complete their research


To apply for a summer research stipend:

  • Please bring a completed hard copy Summer Research Partnership application to the Office of Undergraduate Research in 115B Lux Hall. An electronic copy of the application should also be emailed to

Application Review
The Undergraduate Research Committee reviews applications and makes funding recommendations. Rubrics for summer proposals are available on the Undergraduate Research MyMeredith webpage.

Stipends and Commitment

Stipends and Commitment: We encourage the research work to be done on a full-time basis of 35 hours a week for eight weeks. Students, in consultation with faculty mentors, may propose part-time or interrupted schedules based on the needs of the project and particular summer scheduling needs.

Projects that involve student collaborations are highly encouraged, and projects involving up to two students may submit a single application and project outline. Each student involved in the collaboration should outline their personal contribution to the project, including time commitment.

Individual stipends will depend on individual commitment to the project. Partnerships that blend scholarly research in collaboration with community partners are also encouraged.
