The Washington University Summer Engineering Fellowship (WUSEF) program is designed to encourage exceptional students from first generation or disadvantaged backgrounds to participate in engineering research. Fellows will enjoy a rewarding summer research experience at one of the nation’s top universities.
From May 28 – August 2, 2024, each fellow will engage in an independent research project under the guidance of a McKelvey School of Engineering faculty member.
Projects will be in the general areas of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, computer science and materials science. Potential applications include medicine, renewable energy, pollution control and nanotechnology.
Fellows will be selected for their intellectual promise, curiosity and motivation. Prior research experience is not necessary. Students from mathematics and the physical sciences, as well as engineering, are welcome to apply.
What makes WUSEF unique?
Once admitted, fellows choose a research project in any discipline and department within the McKelvey School of Engineering.
Fellows receive up to $500 to present their research at a conference after the program ends.
Fellows live on the Delmar Loop, named one of the top 10 streets in the U.S. by the American Planning Association.
