Woodrow Wilson Undergraduate Research Fellowship Program
Johns Hopkins University
3400 N. Charles Street
Baltimore, MD 21218
In addition to the criteria above, students eligible for this program are those who demonstrate an active interest in conducting their own research. The selection of Wilson Research Fellows is based on academic merit and the strength of the applicant’s proposal for independent projects.
Because this program was established by a generous donation to the dean of the Krieger School, all Fellows must be Arts and Sciences majors. This does not mean, however, that Fellows may not do research in other Hopkins schools. Interdisciplinary research and study is encouraged.
The application process is slightly different for incoming freshmen and for rising sophomores.
To be considered for the Woodrow Wilson Undergraduate Research Fellowship Program in the Johns Hopkins University Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, please respond by completing and returning the form found on the Undergraduate Admissions site.
2014 Deadline for Incoming Freshmen: February 17th
While the majority of Wilson Research Fellows are accepted to the program as incoming freshmen, current first-year students are welcome to apply for sophomore fellowship standing in the spring of their freshmen year. Students not accepted into the program as freshmen may re-apply during their first year at Hopkins. We appreciate your interest in the Woodrow Wilson Undergraduate Research Fellowship Program, we welcome your questions, and we hope to see you among our selected scholars.
All Hopkins Arts and Sciences freshmen are invited to apply to the Woodrow Wilson Undergraduate Research Program. The purpose of the program is to encourage research, broadly defined, by Hopkins undergraduates.
The program offers each Wilson Fellow three unique elements:
Approximately 10 current freshmen will be chosen for this program. They will join the current Fellows, as well as a group of incoming freshmen (who undergo a separate application process). Completion of the Woodrow Wilson Program will also be recognized at graduation.
The online application can be found here.
One letter of recommendation from a faculty member is required. Once your application is complete, please ask your recommender to upload the letter where indicated at the top of the application.
Please note that you will not be able to submit your application until the competition is underway in the spring of 2014.
