Full Funded Research Scholarship for Undergraduate Students at CSHL in the USA

The Undergraduate Research Program (URP) at CSHL provides an opportunity for undergraduate scientists from all over the world to conduct their research there. Through this opportunity, students will learn scientific methodology, technical methods, and theoretical principles, and communicate their discoveries to other scientists. About 20 students come to CSHL each summer for a 10-week program, in which they live and work in an exciting laboratory environment. Participants in the URP program will attend a series of workshops, seminars and social events as well as to conduct research in the laboratory. URP participants can live and work among CSHL scientists. On weekends, students can explore New York City or the sandy beaches of Long Island for free.

Eligibility:

  • Students from any nationality are eligible for the program.
  • Students should have a strong academic background in a science. Although the Program emphasizes the biological sciences, students with engineering, chemistry, computer science, math, or physics backgrounds are also encouraged to apply.
  • Students must be returning to an undergraduate degree program following their URP summer research experience, current sophomores and juniors, or the equivalent, are eligible. Only in exceptional cases will first-year undergraduate students, with prior independent research experience, be considered.
  • Having previous laboratory research experience will be very helpful for your application but it's not required.
  • If your academic semester conflicts with the dates of the URP program, you are still eligible to apply. If you are accepted into the Program, CSHL will discuss how your academic schedule can be accommodated. For instance, in past years, some students have arranged with their professors at their home university to take one or more final exam at CSHL. But please note that all URP researchers are expected to participate in the program as a single group and must therefore plan to be at CSHL during the dates of the program.
  • There is no minimum GPA required but successful applicants generally have GPAs around 3.5 or higher in their science and math courses.
  • If your GPA is not on a 4.0 scale, then please convert your grade to a 4.0 scale. If your institution does not have a standard scaling, then calculate by dividing your average mark by the maximum possible mark and multiplying by 4.0.
  • TOEFL or IELTS scores are not required for admission to the URP program.

Funding:

  1. Students winning this opportunity will receive a stipend of $5500. 
  2. All room expenses will be covered.
  3. Travel costs are not reimbursed.
