WCHP Undergraduate Summer Research Fellowship

The Westbrook College of Health Professions and the Office of Sponsored Programs are proud to offer Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships for WCHP students. The fellowships, which are highly competitive, provide:

  • A stipend of $436/week (minimum 8 weeks, maximum 12 weeks)
  • $200 for research supplies 

No previous research experience is required. During the fellowship, you work alongside a faculty mentor who has an ongoing research program. Using an apprenticeship model, you learn about research design, reading and interpreting research papers, as well as real-world data collection and analysis methods. The research topics vary widely.

If you are interested in experiencing research first hand, you must identify a research mentor (also referred to as a research advisor) who agrees to work with you as you complete the application. Please see the information on finding a mentor to identify a faculty member who works with undergraduate researchers.

The application deadline is in early March every year. Notices that applications are open are sent out via UNE Community News.
