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.
The deadline to submit 2015 summer research fellowship applications is February 16, 2015. Note that each program has its own application procedure and eligibility criteria, so follow the instructions carefully!
The summer program starts on May 18 and runs for 10 weeks. The Summer Research Symposium will be held July 22-23. See the summer research calendar for additional dates.
Mach fellowships provide funding to rising seniors for use in research or scholarly activity during their senior year. One Mach Fellow nomination is permitted per department. Mach fellowships don’t have to be used during the summer.
