Research and Creative Fellowships

Get paid to conduct your own research, even as an undergraduate.

And not just in the lab! Lead an investigation in any major, or even add an academic lens to your artistic projects and community service.

You'll get to take the lead on your own inquiries, then share your insights with a community of scholars from other majors and backgrounds. Get 1-on-1 guidance from a faculty mentor, plus engage with leading professors from other disciplines. 

Spring applications will open this fall.
