About the Summer Scholars and Artists Program


The Binghamton University Undergraduate Research Center offers the Summer Scholars and Artists Fellowship to support undergraduates in special research, scholarship or creative activities during the summer.This prestigious award provides a stipend to permit students to conduct primary research or creative activities with guidance from faculty mentors. The fellowship is intended to support the student's original research or creative project(s), not to support research assistance for a faculty member's research project.

During summer 2014, student scholars and artists produced films, conducted field and bench research, and explored research questions on topics that spanned the world and covered Medieval times to the present. The nature of the summer experience is discipline specific. For example, proposals for theater apprenticeships or individual study for students in music performance are appropriate along with those for other types of creative activities. Proposals from students in all academic disciplines, departments and colleges are welcome.

The fellowship supports undergraduate students in at least eight weeks of full-time scholarly activity. Each fellowship consists of a $3,000 student award and a $1,000 faculty award. In addition, a stipend is available for campus housing if needed.  Support for the awards is provided by the divisions of Academic Affairs and Student Affairs.


The deadline for the summer 2015 fellowship application is Friday, January 30, 2015.  Students applying for summer apprenticeships (i.e. summer theater) must submit completed applications for those positions with the SSAP application. Please note that the award will be contingent on being accepted to the apprenticeship.
