Applicants are expected to have a GPA of 3.0 or higher and must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States or its possessions.

Students traditionally underrepresented in engineering, persons with disabilities, military personnel and veterans, and those from institutions with few research opportunities are particularly encouraged to apply. Admission priority will be given to students outside the University of Minnesota. 

No experience in research is required; rather, we are looking for students who show an interest in research and a desire to try something new.

The program is open to full-time college students who:

  • will have completed their sophomore or junior year by June 2023
  • will be enrolled as a full-time student in Fall 2023
  • expect to obtain their bachelor’s degree in engineering, biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, or related fields
