How did Johns Hopkins senior Neha Deshpande conduct research that took her from Baltimore to India? The Truman Scholar compared neonatal health in the two countries with help from a Woodrow Wilson Undergraduate Research Fellowship, a monetary award of up to $10,000 that is granted to incoming freshmen in the Krieger School of Arts & Sciences. It’s just one of many opportunities for students to engage in hands-on learning with a faculty mentor at Johns Hopkins. Learn more and apply!.
Up to two qualified engineering students have a similar chance to work with faculty members with the Charles R. Westgate Scholarship in Engineering.
Johns Hopkins was founded on the exploration of intellectual questions and the discovery of new ideas in every discipline. Along the way, scholars have discovered ideas that have shaped the direction of science, the practice of medicine, the world of literature, the methods of business, the sounds of music, the conduct of international affairs, and the process of engineering. At Johns Hopkins, you become part of this exhilarating tradition. Together with other original thinkers from all over the globe and with world-class professors at the forefront of their fields, you’ll be challenged not just to learn but also to advance learning itself—and you will discover the power of your own ideas.
Krieger School of Arts and Sciences
Learning in the liberal arts is characterized by excellence and variety here; Hopkins students go beyond the classroom to explore their worlds their ways. You’ll have the opportunity to make your own discoveries and the guidance you need to get there: in groups; through faculty mentorships; and through internships, study abroad, and the cultural connections of one of the most exciting cities around. And you’ll do it all as part of a close-knit undergraduate community on a beautiful campus that’s bursting with things to do.
Whiting School of Engineering
It’s an exciting time to be an engineer—especially at Johns Hopkins, where engineering encompasses everything from robotics, cryptology, tissue engineering, and nanotechnology to wind energy and medical device design.
At the Whiting School of Engineering, you’ll work as part of a team and be guided by teachers who are leaders in their fields. You’ll learn to think creatively while you draw upon mathematics and scientific principles in order to tackle real-world problems. Outside the classroom, you’ll have opportunities to conduct research, take part in one-of-a-kind internships, participate in engineering student groups, and study abroad. And you’ll receive guidance on how best to direct your college career toward your professional or graduate school goals.
Ultimately, you’ll gain the experiences and knowledge you need to make a difference in the world.
