The Summer Research Scholars is a fellowship that will offer a stipend to scholars to pursue on campus summer research between their sophomore and junior year or between junior and senior year. The Jasper Summer Research Program will support up to three students each from School of Liberal Arts, School of Science, School of Education, School of Business, and School of Engineering undergraduate programs. Scholars sponsored by the Branigan Program, the Mahony Scholars, the Deans of the School of Science and other organizations on campus will be part of this cohort as well.
Scholars will be chosen based on an evaluation of their proposed research or creative project, their academic and co-curricular achievements, and promise for future contributions to knowledge and research in their discipline. As part of this program, the Center for Graduate School and Fellowship Advisement will provide enhanced programs, advising and support so that students develop intellectual, interpersonal, and research skills to be competitive applicants to graduate school, professional school, and fellowships.
The 2020 Research Scholar Cohort will conduct their research virtually. These students work intensively on research projects under the direction of Manhattan College faculty.
