Undergraduate Summer Research Program

​​​​​​The Undergraduate Summer Research Program of the College of Science and Health grants financial awards to undergraduate students in the support of summer research projects undertaken in collaboration with a faculty member.  The program offers a complement to the typical classroom experience by giving students an opportunity to design a project, develop a proposal for competitive review, work closely with a faculty mentor on the project, and prepare results for presentation at the annual CSH Undergraduate Research Showcase as well as DePaul Discoveries, the college's undergraduate research journal.

Please specify your plan for conducting research safely and whether it will occur in-person or remotely.​

The College of Science and Health Research committee judges each application on the quality of the proposed project and the educational benefit to the student proposer.  Because funding is limited, awards are granted to only the strongest proposals.

All applications must be received by April 8. ​​​The committee will begin reviewing applications after the posted deadline. Applicants will be notified of the committee's decision approximately one month following the posted grant deadline.​

To submit an application, please complete the following steps.

  1. Download and read the application instructions.
  2. Submit the online application form along with all relevant documentation.
  3. Have your faculty mentor submit an online recommendation form including a letter of recommendation.

For more information, please contact Dr. Susan McMahon, Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Programs.​​​
