Undergraduate Research Opportunities

Dean's Summer Undergraduate Fellowship

The SASN Undergraduate Summer Research Fellowship is a competitive program that provides a $3,200 stipend to undergraduate students engaged in scholarly or creative activities during the summer months under the supervision of a full-time faculty member in the School of Arts & Sciences-Newark.

Over the past several years, these fellowships have supported outstanding undergraduates from across a range of academic disciplines, including the arts, sciences, social sciences, and humanities.  We anticipate awarding up to seven fellowships this summer.
