The Burgers Program Undergraduate Summer Research Scholarships

The Burgers Program for Fluid Dynamics offers fluid dynamics research scholarships for University of Maryland undergraduates from the College of Computer, Mathematical and Natural Sciences and the A. James Clark School of Engineering for the summer of 2024.  We provide up to two scholarship awards.  To be eligible for the scholarship, each student must arrange a summer-long research program with a Burgers Program faculty mentor (see faculty list at from one of the colleges mentioned above.  Each student receives a stipend of $5,000 for a full-time commitment for the 10-week scholarship; the stipend is prorated for students planning a smaller time commitment.   We provide an additional $500 for supplies if needed for the research project.

To apply for the scholarship, please fill out the application form.
