Short announcements about upcoming events and opportunities

Winter break is a great time to apply for summer opportunities!

Do you have summer plans yet? Interested in pursuing funded research? While a few deadlines have passed, there are still many that are open. Winter break is an ideal time to review your options and to start working on your applications. Fellowships Advising is here to guide you, even before the spring semester begins.


Check out our list of funded summer opportunities. Most relate to research, but a few focus on study abroad or other opportunities to study a focused topic.


Here are a few highlighted opportunities:


Diamond Research Scholars: The Diamond Research Scholars Program provides Temple undergraduates the opportunity to engage in a focused, mentored research or creative arts project during the summer and fall. Deadline: February 10.


Creative Arts, Research, and Scholarship (CARAS): A Temple funding opportunity to encourage and support undergraduate students engaged in scholarly, creative, and research projects that contribute to advancing their field of study. Deadline: March 15.


Leadership Alliance Summer Research Early Identification Program. Offers closely mentored research experiences in the life and physical sciences, social and behavioral sciences, and the humanities at 20 research institutions across the country. Ideal for students from diverse background considering pursuing a PhD or MD/PhD in the future. Deadline: February 1.


National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU): Spend the summer at one of 100s of labs across the country (and some abroad) conducting research as part of a team. Ideal for STEM undergraduates, but social science students should also check the list of sites. Deadlines vary from late November to early March, but most are in December through February.


Fulbright UK Summer Institutes: One of the few major awards intended for freshmen or sophomores (GPA 3.7 or higher). Spend 3-4 weeks at selected UK universities.

Deadline: February 11.


Rangel International Affairs Summer Enrichment Program. A six-week summer program designed to provide undergraduate students with a deeper appreciation of current issues and trends in international affairs, a greater understanding of career opportunities in international affairs, and the enhanced knowledge and skills to pursue such careers. This program encourages the application of members of minority groups historically underrepresented in the Foreign Service, women, and those with financial need. Must be at least a sophomore at the time of application. Deadline: February 4.


Don't go it alone! Interested Temple students are encouraged to meet with Fellowships Advising to plan or review their application essays. Use Handshake Appointments to schedule a time to meet. We are even available this week.
