The Eureka! Scholars Program

Eureka Scholars 2019

2019 Eureka! Scholars and Julia Brown Scholars

The Eureka! Scholars Program offers a highly competitive summer research experience for some of our most promising undergraduate Biology students. Under the guidance of a faculty mentor, Eureka! Scholars conduct leading-edge research in life science labs. This impactful, hands-on summer experience greatly complements students' academic learning and jumpstarts their role as budding scientists.

Make a Difference

Eureka! Scholarships are possible only with the generous support of alumni, donors and friends. The scholarship provides funding for students to cover basic living expenses over the summer so that they can spend their time gaining real-world experience in the laboratory.

You can support one Eureka! Scholar with a gift of $5,000. Or, a gift of $10,000 supports two Eureka! Scholars, and so on. Gifts of all sizes can be pooled together to provide scholarship support, so every contribution truly makes a difference.
