I am very happy to be able to call myself a 'EuroScholar' and to be a part of this amazing opportunity.

Sarah Tresedder, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology


Students must be a member of the Honors College with a 3.7 GPA recommended (3.4 minimum), have junior or senior status, and a strong interest in conducting academic research. Students must also demonstrate academic background in the field of study and the specialization chosen. Previous research experience is not required. However, in certain circumstances students are expected to have prior laboratory or research experience equivalent to that which may be obtained through coursework. For example, students opting for a research project in the natural sciences, including practical laboratory work, need to have prior laboratory experience.

Applicants’ participation may be denied or their participation approval may be revoked if their conduct before departure raises doubts as to their suitability for program participation.
