College of Natural Sciences Summer International Scholars Program

The College of Natural Sciences’ Summer International Scholars Program provides funding for departments to host a faculty member from outside the USA to spend 2-6 weeks in the department within the College of Natural Sciences. The visiting scholar is expected to conduct research and participate in teaching of summer undergraduate students either through a course, workshops, seminars, or via participation in one of the existing Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) programs. Funding will depend upon length of stay, ≤2 weeks $2,500; > than 2 weeks, $5,000.  Departments that have not previously been awarded a summer scholar will be given the highest priority.
