International Summer Scholars

Greetings from the University of Bridgeport!

Announcing the 2019 International Summer Scholars Program

The International Summer Scholars program at the University of Bridgeport in Bridgeport, Connecticut, U.S.A., is a two-week summer program that will be held from July 7 to July 20.

Who should attend? Freshmen, sophomores, or juniors in college who seek a transformative international research experience.

The program is designed to provide an extraordinary research experience in the American tradition of higher education. The University’s distinguished faculty serve as research mentors across disciplines, including business, engineering, computer science, biology, psychology, and more.

Program benefits include:

Located a little more than an hour from New York City, the campus is situated by beautiful Seaside Park along Long Island Sound.
