Emerging Scholars Student Requirements

Students: APPLY by March 5

Emerging Scholars provides students with a unique year-long opportunity to apply the theoretical knowledge gained from courses at UMass Lowell to a faculty member’s on-going research. Check out the choices for 2018-2019.

Student Requirements

Before submitting an application to become an Emerging Scholar, students need to meet the following requirements: 

  • GPA of 3.25 or higher.
  • Standing of junior or senior.
  • Full-time undergraduate status 
  • Must be a major or minor in FAHSS or Department of Education

Selected students will work on the research project for a total of 125 hours per semester and will receive a $2,500 stipend for the year. To support their work on the research project, students will participate in an orientation, regular meetings with other student scholars, and workshops about research methods. 

The work of the student-scholar partnerships will be highlighted by collaborative participation in the undergraduate research symposium in April.
