Eligibility for a Summer GUROP or Kalorama Fellowship
Undergraduate degree status in any of Georgetown’s undergraduate schools.
Good academic standing. The summer GUROP Fellowship applicant pool is a highly competitive one; the average grade point average of a summer fellowship applicant is ~ 3.6. A high GPA indicates a hard-working student focused on coursework. Research always requires hard work, but also originality and an ability to consider all sides of a problem.
For GUROP – Previous research with Georgetown faculty in any academic discipline. The student researcher should have been closely-mentored and engaged, as appropriate, in the intellectual content of the research.
For KALORAMA – The research question proposed is original to the student, but has the support and availability of a faculty member to advise and redirect as appropriate. The student’s previous coursework and employment may reflect the student’s abiding interest in the topic.
Preferred but not required: previous participation in “regular” GUROP in any of the three terms preceding the summer of proposed participation.
Rising sophomore, junior or senior status. Students who will have received their undergraduate degrees prior to the summer of proposed participation are not eligible.
Note: You cannot receive course credit for a funded undergraduate research assistantship.
