Summer Time Research Internships Grant

The Gatton Academy offers grants to students between their junior and senior years to support summer time research internships. Grant applications are reviewed and approved in late March each year. Grants of up to $3,000 are awarded, depending on the quality of the proposal and the number of hours one will devote to research during the summer. Placements can be in any STEM discipline, anywhere in the world where an applicant finds a supervising sponsor who will oversee them–universities, governmental laboratories, and STEM industries are all acceptable. Our students are encouraged to think big. The Gatton Academy's intent is to fund students in summer time experiences that would otherwise be impossible.
