Honors College Summer Research Awards

University Honors College 2012 Summer Research Abroad Awards
The University Honors College (UHC) 2012 Summer Research Abroad Awards are intended to support undergraduate scholarship abroad under the direction of a faculty mentor. Up to ten $5,000 awards, administered by the UHC, are available to provide students with funding to support international travel for a minimum of five weeks to conduct an original research project during the summer. Although travel with the cooperating faculty member is possible, students may conduct their research abroad without the cooperating faculty member’s presence at the research site. Students are not limited to working with University of Pittsburgh faculty members; for example, the research project may be pursued in a faculty member’s lab at an institution outside of the United States.
Deadlines and Eligibility
Applications are due February 1, 2012
Applications will be accepted from any University of Pittsburgh undergraduate who:
• has a 3.25 cumulative GPA
• has submitted a program application to Pitt’s Study Abroad Office or, if the research project is not part of a formal program, is working with the Study Abroad Office regarding the administrative details associated with travel abroad (more information can be found on the Study Abroad website www.abroad.pitt.edu)
• has a faculty sponsor within the project’s discipline who will be responsible for the oversight of the project
Application Requirements
Applications will be judged on the merits of the proposed research project and degree of support from the cooperating faculty mentor. Complete application instructions are available on the Honors College website at:
