Emerging Scholars Summer Research, Scholarship & Creativity Program

The Emerging Scholars Summer Research, Scholarship & Creativity Program supports students in the early exploration of their research and scholarly interests. The program develops students' research skills by connecting them with a faculty mentor or mentors. This program differs from other summer research grant programs at Bucknell, such as the Program for Undergraduate Research, which call for detailed project proposals outlining structured research projects. Instead, Emerging Scholars are expected to pursue exploratory, conceptual and applied research, scholarship or creative projects. Emerging Scholars will receive a stipend to cover living expenses as well as on-campus housing for the duration of their project.


Successful applicants are expected to work on their scholarship on a full-time basis, 35 hours or more a week (with the understanding that this amount will necessarily vary based on the project), for at least eight weeks, preferably 10 weeks, over the summer under the close mentorship of a Bucknell faculty member. Scholars will also participate in weekly scholarly and professional development workshops that will meet weekly throughout June and July.
