The Mellon Research Scholars Program at the University of Houston supports underrepresented students (Hispanic, African American, Pacific Islander) and other undergraduates with a demonstrated commitment to the goal of building a diverse academy in the humanities. The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation is committed to training future scholars and supporting scholarship in the humanities, thereby contributing to culture and society. Each participant receives a total of $5,000 for conducting a summer research project and participating in developmental academic and mentorship activities from Spring of their junior year through Spring of their Senior year.
