Excellence in Futures award application deadline is May 11, 2023 and Prestige award application deadline August 1, 2023.

As an Excellence in Futures Scholar you will build meaningful connections across Penn State's campuses and gain expertise in the business side of biotech.  Your project will begin this May, and you will work remotely over the summer on your own schedule.

If you are engaged in independent research, the PRESTIGE Undergraduate Research Scholarship offers you the ideal opportunity to advance your experience and distinguish yourself from your peers. PRESTIGE Scholars will earn funding for their work in the laboratory and present their findings during the 2023-2024 academic year.

Applicants from all majors are encouraged to apply. For any questions regarding these opportunities or SIB, contact Nate Carey at
