Applications for the Woodrow Wilson Undergraduate Research Program

All Arts and Sciences freshmen are invited to apply to the Woodrow Wilson Undergraduate Research Program. The purpose of the program is to encourage research, broadly defined, by Johns Hopkins undergraduates.

The program offers each Wilson Fellow mentoring by one of the school's distinguished faculty members; financial support of up to $7,500, distributed over three years, for research-related travel, work or study, and equipment; and a senior poster session at which the results of the fellows' work are presented to the Johns Hopkins community.

Approximately five current freshmen will be chosen for this program, joining fellows from the classes of 2010, 2011 and 2012, as well as incoming freshmen who undergo a separate application process. Completion of the Woodrow Wilson Program will also be recognized at graduation.

Application requirements include a two-page statement on intended research and the applicant's qualifications for pursuing it; a resume; a letter of recommendation from a faculty member willing to serve as initial mentor; and a copy of the second semester transcript, sent to the address below. The deadline for applying is May 18. Applications should be submitted to Ami Cox, Woodrow Wilson Research Fellowship Program, 225 Mergenthaler, Homewood campus.

CPR/AED training is being offered to JHU faculty and staff from 9 a.m. to noon on Wednesday, May 20, on the Homewood campus.
