Jasper Summer Research Scholars

The Jasper Summer Research Scholars is a fellowship that will offer a stipend to scholars to pursue on campus summer research between their sophomore and junior year or between junior and senior year. This research program, supported by Manhattan College, is managed though the Center for Graduate School and Fellowship Advisement and will support up to three students each from School of Arts, School of Science, School of Education, School of Business, and School of Engineering undergraduate programs. Scholars will be chosen for their proposed research or creative project, their academic and co-curricular achievements, and promise for future contributions to knowledge and research in their discipline. In addition, the Center for Graduate School and Fellowship Advisement will provide enhanced programs, advising and support so that students develop intellectual, interpersonal, and research skills to be competitive applicants to graduate school, professional school, and fellowships.
