Summer 2021: Now Accepting Student Applications

Students can view the summer 2021 projects at the DURI Projects page. The student application deadline is March 24. Faculty project supervisors will review all eligible student applications before making final selections. Students will be notified of their acceptance after that date -- ideally, by April 9.

During the summer, student teams will be responsible for pursuing their research projects, culminating with a poster presentation and one-page abstract/summary of their results. Assuming all requirements are met, each participating student will earn a $4,500 summer term scholarship from the DURI program.

The DURI program provides opportunities for undergraduate students to work with researchers on cutting-edge research on challenges in the areas of global security, health, and sustainability. In these projects, solutions will be researched by combining faculty and students with two or more distinct disciplinary strengths.
