Maryland Summer Scholars Program

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 2015, the program will provide awards of $3,000 to approximately 30 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.]

Application Deadline: The deadline to apply for summer 2015 awards will be midnight on Sunday, February 8, 2015. It is important that candidates begin developing their proposals as soon as possible.
