The Summer Award for Research-Intensive Courses is offered for Maymester and Summer Session I and II courses in 2015 to provide opportunities for students to enroll in research-intensive courses during summer session. The award will cover in-state tuition for one 3-hour research-intensive course.


All undergraduate students enrolled in a research-intensive course are eligible. Rising seniors will receive priority.
