How to Apply

Two Delivery Options

The 2023 Application Opens April 1, 2023

The 2023 EUREKA! program is being offered both online and in-person.

About 25 incoming first-year Clemson Honors students (in each delivery option) will be given the chance to dive into the research experience with some of Clemson’s top faculty.

Working as part of a team or one-on-one, EUREKA! gives you the chance to engage early and could lead you on a path toward your next great discovery. It can even help you find a new interest! 

Whether you choose to take the EUREKA! program in-person or online, you will receive quality opportunities for research and a chance to become familiar with the University and its people.

Program fees

EUREKA! program fees are collected online. If your student is selected for the program, program fees are due on June 1, 2023

There is a $2,800 program fee plus a $500 meal plan fee for the in-person program. There is a $600 program fee for the online program.

Other program fees include a $50 application fee to apply.

  • The application fee is credited toward program cost if the student is selected for the program.
  • The application fee is refunded to the applicant’s TigerStripe account if the student is not selected to participate in the program.
  • The only way a student does not receive an application refund is if that student is selected for the program and then chooses not to attend.

$100 is refunded to the TigerStripe accounts of all students who successfully complete the program.

Please note that no refunds are given to any student expelled from the EUREKA! program.
