Apply for the The Viterbi Tsinghua Undergraduate Summer Research Program

There is less than two weeks left to apply for the USC Viterbi Tsinghua Undergraduate Summer Research Program!

The Tsinghua Undergraduate Research Program allows Viterbi students to participate in research with faculty on-campus for the summer at Tsinghua University in Beijing, China. Students are assigned to a lab and have an assigned Tsinghua student partner for their time at Tsinghua where they work 30 hours a week doing hands on research in their assigned lab. During the program students will gain exposure to China and Chinese culture with opportunities to learn more about the country, culture and research approaches.

Program Highlights include: 

  • Welcome Reception & Campus Tour
  • On-Campus, Dormitory-Style Accommodations
  • 6-7 Weeks over the summer
  • $7,000 Stipend for visa, airfare, housing, and living expenses
  • 30 Hours per week in research lab

The application and letter of recommendation deadline is December 2, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. PST.

This program is funded by a generous contribution from Viterbi Alumnus Feng Deng, who understands the importance of collaborative exchanges between two outstanding research institutions. The goal of this program is to provide students who have had very little exposure to China or Chinese culture with opportunities to learn more about the country, culture, and research approaches.

For more information and to apply please visit the program website

Important Note:
The University is currently reviewing how it will proceed with international programs for summer 2023.  This trip is dependent on university guidelines. Viterbi and the university both reserve the right to postpone or cancel this program.
