The finalists will have until May 1 to accept and confirm their admission to the Institute. Alternates will then be notified if any positions remain open. The maximum number of O'Hara Institute scholarships is 20.
In addition to the scholarship program for new freshmen, the O'Hara Institute provides a stipend, room and board for current UD students to work with a UD professor during the summer on a research project. If you are a UD student who is interested in doing research, talk with the professor with whom you wish to work and then submit an application form to Dr. Hendrickson.
