Nemours Summer Undergraduate Research Program

Newark, DE.
Type Basic Science Research


For over 30 years, the Nemours Summer Undergraduate Research Program has been funding scholarships to undergraduate students for work on summer research projects. Fourteen scholarships are available this year: there are 5 basic and 5 clinical research projects funded by Nemours Biomedical Research at the Nemours/A.I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, DE and 4 projects focusing on Health Equities funded by the Nemours Office of Health Equity and Inclusion in Newark, DE. Each scholarship recipient receives a $4300 monetary award. Current college students at the time of application are eligible. Participation is required throughout the 10-week, full-time program.

Scholarship recipients are matched with scientist/physician mentors according to student’s expressed interest in the projects, the student’s background, and interest in the student by the mentors. Enrichment activities integral to the program include research/clinical seminars, participation in student led activities such as a journal club, and opportunities for clinical shadowing. On the final day of the program, a mandatory symposium is held during which Summer Research Students present their research activities to the Nemours community, family, and friends.


Applicants must have a minimum GPA of 3.2 and interest in Basic and Applied Sciences, Health Disparities, Public Health, Epidemiology, Pre-Med, Healthcare or related fields.
