The BDP Summer Undergraduate Research Program offers interested undergraduates the opportunity to partner with one of our Bloomberg Distinguished Professors over the summer. The participating BDP Faculty and their affiliated labs and centers will provide the project, training and guidance. Applying students are required to complete the online application, submit their resume/ CV, a brief personal statement, and select up to 4 participating BDPs of interest. No previous experience is required (unless noted) and there is no proposal to submit. Participating BDP’s and their projects or research areas will be listed below during the open application period. The list of BDP faculty and projects will vary from year to year based on participation.
The BDP Summer Undergraduate Research Program will pay students a $4000 stipend (in semi-monthly installments) to help offset the expense of staying at JHU over the summer. The program runs for 10 weeks, full-time (40 hours/ week) over the summer from June to mid-August. Students are expected to arrange and pay for their own summer housing. All participating students participants are strongly encouraged to present a poster at the annual Hopkins CARES Symposium and Poster Session. Should you be unable to present at Hopkins CARES, you will be required to present at DREAMS, held annually in April. You are strongly encouraged to present your project at both Hopkins CARES and DREAMS.
As with all other HOUR programs, the BDP Summer Undergraduate Research Program encourages applications from students from under-served backgrounds (e.g., first generation students, low-income backgrounds), students who are underrepresented in STEM fields, and those who have no prior research experience.
