What is RESS?

Participate in cutting-edge, inquiry-based research and scholarship at IUP this summer during the annual Research Experiences for Summer Scholars Program. This 10-week program offers students from all majors a one-of-a-kind, hands-on experience and promises some of the best networking opportunities and professional development events IUP has to offer. You will be amazed by the resources available to you and the quality of original scholarship being created right here on our campus.

Participation in the RESS program is free for all students, and an optional on-campus housing and meal plan is available at a discounted rate. Students can request funding to help offset summer expenses such as housing and food. Typically, half of participating students receive funding ranging from $200 to $1,000. Financial assistance and federal work study is limited, so apply early!

The program follows IUP’s summer schedule. The traditional 10-week program spans Summer I and II, but you can customize the program by choosing any combination of the following sessions:

  • Early Summer Session: May 14–June 1
  • Summer I: June 4–July 6
  • Summer II: July 9–August 9
