Duke Summer Research in Chemistry
The Department of Chemistry offers a limited number of summer undergraduate research fellowships for Duke Chemistry Majors who intend to pursue Graduation with Distinction. These fellowships allow majors to carry out chemistry research with Duke faculty during the summer session and include a monthly stipend. Applicants are expected to have identified a research group in which to work and confirmed a place in that group for the summer.
The Undergraduate Research Support Office accepts applications for Trinity Deans' Summer Research Fellowships. The applications deadline is typically in the first week of March. Students whose summer research is part of a Graduation with Distinction project are especially encouraged to apply. The awards provide up to $3000 in support. (Note that non-graduating Pratt students may apply for a Deans' Summer Research Fellowship if they are conducting research on campus with a faculty member in and as part of a second major in Trinity College of Arts & Sciences.) Students may use the funds toward room and board if staying in Durham to be engaged in their research or toward travel and lodging costs if their research requires their using archives or other resources away from campus, including locations outside the U.S. Students may not be enrolled in courses during the research period specified in the application nor may they receive compensation during that period.
Information about a number of other relevant summer research fellowships can be found on the URS Office website.
