Summer Research Fellowship Program
Each summer, Marymount University’s DISCOVER Research Program awards student research fellowships to 15-18 Marymount students. These fellowships, available to both undergraduate and graduate Marymount students, provide a financial stipend for students who work one-on-one with a faculty mentor on the faculty mentor’s research project. Students are selected for this award through a competitive process.
Both in-person and remote student participation options are available based on the needs of the individual projects. The fellowship promises to be a very positive learning experience and an exceptional opportunity for professional growth and mentorship.
The Fellowship runs from May 22, 2023, through June 30, 2023. In addition to the research activities, Fellows participate in weekly community-building, educational, and information-sharing sessions created specifically for the Fellows program. Students are expected to dedicate 12-15 hours weekly to the Fellowship during the 6-week fellowship program.
Student application forms and directions are available and will remain open until April 12. Please click here to access the application form.
How do you find a project and faculty mentor?
Here is the link to access the list of faculty projects for 2023. You will be able to scroll through the full list of available topics.
Students can apply for up to three different Fellowship projects. No more than one fellowship per student will be awarded.
To be eligible for a Summer Research Program Fellowship, a student must be a Marymount student in good academic standing. Students who graduate in May or August of 2023 are NOT eligible.
The faculty member hosting the research project will review the applications for their specific project(s) and rank order applicants based on the review of the student’s responses to the application.
Some faculty may choose to interview student candidates. This is optional. Be available for an interview during the month of April, if needed.
A final ‘match’ by the Research Committee identifies the best fit for both student and faculty preferences. Notice of the award of the Fellowship should be made by May 1, 2023.
