Overview of the Program

Current Grant Period: Summer 2014

The Rose Hills Foundation, which supports non-profit organizations that serve the citizens of Southern California, has generously provided funding for a limited number of students who would like to obtain Science and Engineering Fellowships during the summer. Each undergraduate student funded by the program will receive a stipend in the amount of $5000 to support full-time research in science or engineering for a period of not less than eight weeks during the period May 13 through August 13. All full-time USC faculty engaged in science or engineering research are eligible to serve as faculty supervisors. Faculty supervisors will receive $1000 for each student supervised.

Students will submit an online application and faculty supervisor recommendation form by March 28, 2014 to be considered for funding. All funding decisions will be announced in mid-April. Students who receive funding will be required to submit a two-page summary of their completed research project before September 12, 2014.

If you have any questions, please contact Dr. David Glasgow at (213) 740-6146 or at dglasgow@usc.edu.
