Scholars in Residence

NYC: Scholars in Residence


This 12-week, fully-funded residency program supports 2-4 Dietrich School undergraduates in New York City over the summer 2019 to conduct self-directed research using the city’s many public resources. In the fall term following the residency, undergraduates will register for course credit to continue and finalize their final research projects and present/perform/exhibit/stage their work at a public event with the University of Pittsburgh. Throughout the summer and fall terms, students will have academic support from OUR staff, Faculty Mentors, and Archivists/Librarians who will provide training prior to their trip to New York as well as afterwards to ensure a positive and rewarding learning experience.
