A university-wide initiative, Bass Connections engages students in collaborative research on complex societal challenges, working alongside faculty from across Duke. Most project teams collaborate with partners outside Duke, including companies, nonprofits, universities, school systems, hospitals and government agencies. Many team members take their research further through grants, theses and other opportunities at Duke and beyond.
Project teams last for two semesters, and some include a summer component. Course credit and summer funding are available. Applications are due by 5 p.m. on February 14.
