Program Description

The Diamond Research Scholars Program provides Temple undergraduates the opportunity to engage in a focused, mentored research or creative arts project during the summer and fall. The program requires that students participate in the all-day Undergraduate Research Institute, devote ten weeks during the summer to develop a research project in their area of interest under the direction of their faculty mentor and supported by a $4000 stipend, and complete the project during the fall semester while registered for an independent study/research course.

Additionally, students are expected to present their project at various events both formal and informal throughout the year. Revised versions of the completed work shall be submitted for the spring semester Symposium for Undergraduate Research and Creativity (formerly TURF-CreWS). Students should strive to publish their research papers and/or present their creative works in a public forum.
