Program Description:
Hunter R. Rawlings III Cornell Presidential Research Scholars

RCPRS provides undergraduates demonstrating superior academic potential and intellectual curiosity significant research support over four years. Open to all students, across all academic disciplines, in all seven undergraduate colleges, RCPRS enables its students to collaborate with faculty mentors of their choosing in designing and planning an individualized program of research-a degree of collaboration usually unheard of in the undergraduate experience. Magnifying the power of this dynamic student-faculty partnership, RCPRS provides each scholar with a generous $8,000 research support account (RSA) and an annual need-based loan replacement of up to $4,000. Funding for a full-time summer of research is capped at $3,500.
