Undergraduate research is central to Trinity University's values. At Trinity, undergraduate students work directly with faculty members in innovative research. Students co-author papers that are published in leading academic journals, and give presentations at national conferences.
Trinity offers many students the opportunity to conduct research full-time under the close mentorship of faculty during the 10-week summer research program. Most student researchers receive a stipend, free housing and transcript notation. Student researchers are supported by individual faculty grants or by one of Trinity's Research Programs. At the culmination of the summer research program, students report on their findings in a research symposium.
All students granted a summer undergraduate research fellowship will need to download and complete the Fellowship Award Form. Please be aware this is a fillable pdf that should be completed, printed, and then routed for signatures. Information about summer housing, including the summer housing form may be found here. Keep in mind that both forms are due by 5 p.m. on April 1.The summer program starts on May 17 and runs for 10 weeks. The Summer Research Symposium will be held July 25-26. See the summer research calendar for additional dates.
