The Emerging Scholars program is a one-of-its-kind program designed specifically for first-year students from backgrounds that are traditionally underrepresented in higher education or their field of study.

The program makes available three high-impact practices over the course of a student’s firstyear at CSB/SJU: undergraduate research,learning in community and meaningful oncampus student employment.

Students selected to become Emerging Scholars are paired with a faculty mentor who is committed to making undergraduate research accessible. Emerging Scholars are offered a full-time, paid, on-campus research position (10-12 hours per week) for the entire academic year under the mentorship of their faculty mentor. Students assist their mentor with hands-on research or creative work, participate in personal and professional development and networking opportunities, and are part of a unique learning community of students and faculty that nurtures their sense of belonging on campus.


Only available to current CSB/SJU students, faculty, and staff.
