Villanova Match Research Program for Freshmen


The Villanova Match Research program provides opportunities for motivated freshmen to pursue undergraduate research in the Spring semester. Freshmen applicants do not need substantial experience and will serve as research assistants to faculty mentors. If selected for the Match program, freshmen students will conduct research for 10 hours per week for 10 weeks for which they will receive a $1000 stipend. In addition to conducting undergraduate research, Freshman Match grantees participate in professional development seminars on resumes, cover letters, oral presentations, and grant writing throughout the Spring semester.


More information will be available in October 2015.
