The Young Scholars grant program awards individual grants to undergraduate students at the University of St. Thomas who are interested in spending an entire summer working closely with a professor on a significant research project or creative activity. These grants are designed to give students the time and resources they need for meaningful reflection and in-depth inquiry into a problem or issue of interest both to them and their faculty mentor.

As a Young Scholars Grant recipient, you will be expected to fulfill the following commitments:

  • Meet deadlines as you complete paperwork and online training that is required before you begin research.
  • Work with your faculty mentor on your research on a full-time basis throughout the summer.
  • Submit a final paper or final report (the exact format will be determined by you and your faculty mentor).
  • Share your work at the Inquiry at UST Poster session during the semester after your grant period.

Successful applicants to this program receive a summer stipend of $4,000 and a $700 on-campus housing stipend (if needed) from the end of May to the middle of August. Young Scholars are expected to work on their research projects full-time over the course of at least 10 weeks. Faculty mentors will receive a stipend of $750.

Applications for research projects to be carried out over summer 2017 are due on Friday, February 17, 2017.
