The Summer Fellows program at Ursinus allows sophomores or juniors to pursue an independent scholarly project under the close tutelage of a faculty mentor during an eight week period. Projects can be undertaken as independent research or a creative or artistic endeavor. All Fellows present their research during the last week of the program.
