Center for Academic Equity Summer Grants and Fellowships

The Center for Academic Equity can support you during your summer if you are pursing original undergraduate research, a short-term study abroad experience, summer school at Tulane, or an unpaid internship. We offer a variety of grants, scholarships, or stipends to cover associated expenses. Supporting these opportunities is important to the Center, as we believe the hands-on experiences can provide you with windows into future careers and prepare you for employment and graduate school admissions.

If you are rewarded a summer grant or fellowship, you will reflect on and summarize your experience by presenting at the annual Tulane Idea Symposium.

Tulane Summer School Scholarship

If you require an additional course to keep abreast of your four-year graduation goals you may apply for a scholarship to Tulane University Summer School. This scholarship includes the cost of tuition for one course, any co-requisite labs, and course fees. However, it does not cover the cost of books and other non-tuition expenses such as Reily Student Recreation Center membership etc. 

All full-time continuing Newcomb-Tulane College students within the Center for Academic Equity cohort, regardless of discipline or major, may apply.

In your application, you must demonstrate that the course is an essential component of your major course of study and that you need this course to meet your graduation goals.

Summer Research Fellowship

The Center for Academic Equity will award undergraduate research summer fellowships to outstanding applicants across any field of study at Tulane University. To be considered for a fellowship you must meet the minimum 2.5 GPA requirement, complete the application, and agree to participate in the annual Tulane Idea Symposium.

All full-time continuing Newcomb-Tulane College students within the Center for Academic Equity cohort, regardless of discipline or major, may apply. Previous research experience is not required.

Summer Unpaid Internship Stipend

To be considered for this award, you must complete the application, have a minimum 2.5 GPA, show proof you have been accepted or are applying to an uncompensated internship, and agree to participate in the Idea Symposium.

Your award, if received, is dependent on your securing the internship outlined in this application. The Center will distribute stipends in increments throughout the summer, and each installment is contingent on being in good standing with the internship program.

All full-time continuing Newcomb-Tulane College students within the Center for Academic Equity cohort, regardless of discipline or major, may apply.

Summer Study Abroad Grant
