UNCF•MERCK Science Research Scholarships and Fellowships

The UNCF•Merck Undergraduate Science Research Scholarship Awards are intended

to help African American undergraduate students who are interested in science to further
their science education and potentially pursue science careers. The UNCF•Merck awards provide
tuition support and opportunities for research experience in a state-of-the-art research facility.

Each award provides up to $35,000, which includes up to $25,000 towards tuition, room and board, and billable fees. This award is not transferable.

Each UNCF•Merck Undergraduate Fellow will be mentored by a Merck scientist and will receive
two Summer Research Internships with stipends totaling at least $10,000. One internship will take
place during the summer following the junior year and the other following graduation. The two
10-12 week summer internships will take place at a Merck research facility in Rahway, NJ, West Point,PA or San Diego, CA.

The recipient’s department may receive a Department Grant of up to $10,000. The actual amount of
this grant is contingent upon funds remaining in the scholarship portion of the award after all tuition, room and board, and billable fees are paid.
