Summer Research at University of Nebraska

Application Deadline: March 1, 2021

The Nebraska Summer Research Program is a 10-week residential summer research experience that provides mentoring and research participation while allowing scholars to preview graduate school life at a research university. Participants all receive competitive stipends, room and board, travel/transport, graduate school preparation workshops, social and networking activities, and more.

Nebraska remains hopeful that it will be providing an in-person experience this summer. Should that change, applicants will be notified as soon as possible and a virtual experience will still be offered.

The online application is open until Monday, March 1, and students may apply for up to three different research groups.
