Some research experience programs are fully funded by the federal government or another organization, meaning primary expenses (tuition, housing, meals, supervision) are covered by the program. Others will require students to pay their own expenses for housing, meals, and program supervision.
Costs for grant-funded programs vary, but typically students pay only for their University Admissions Application fee ($40/in-state; $60/out-of-state). For information on non-grant funded programs, please check our Summer College costs.
Additional discretionary expenses may vary by student and are not covered by the research experience program. We recommend students budget for an addition $205 in weekend meals and $200 in “fun” money.
The Rebel Research Scholars programs are highly competitive. Prospective students are encouraged to apply early. Students must meet minimum admission requirements for credit or non-credit research experiences.
*Some programs may have state or national residency requirements. Please verify your eligibility with the program coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org before applying.
