Summer Scholars

The Undergraduate Summer Scholars program enables Miami undergraduates to do research or other creative activities in the summer under the supervision of an individual faculty mentor. Recipients of these scholarships must have completed their sophomore year and must plan to enroll for at least one additional semester after the summer in which they are Scholars. Scholars are chosen competitively on the basis of proposals they submit in early December.

The award requires ten weeks of summer study on a project devised by the student and supervised by a faculty mentor. The student receives twelve credit hours, a stipend, and an allowance to be used in support of the project.

Typically, about ten of these scholarships are awarded to students in the Department of English. Full information about the program is contained in an annual call for proposals issued by the Office for the Advancement of Research and Scholarship.
