Woodrow Wilson Undergraduate Research Fellowship Program

About the Program

The Woodrow Wilson Undergraduate Research Fellowship Program is a unique opportunity for Arts & Sciences students to engage in hands-on, independent learning with top-level faculty mentors from all divisions of Johns Hopkins. No prior research experience is required. Wilson Research Fellows benefit from working closely with the Director of Undergraduate Research for KSAS and participating in a series of research skill building workshops while being a part of a research community. Each Wilson Research Fellow receives funding of up to $10,000 over four years (or up to $7,500 for admitted sophomores) to be spent on research costs, which may include travel, survey participant costs, writing retreats, and use of archives or laboratories.

Students begin meetings with the program director and project planning at the start of their freshman year. Wilson students must work on projects for a minimum of two full years (including two summers at full time and during the summers; funds are most commonly used to support living expenses during summer research). At the close of their senior year, students must complete a thesis and present their research to the Hopkins community. We greatly encourage new researchers and also emphasize that creative projects from the completion of a manuscript to production of a film are considered research projects.
