Selected Fellows will receive funding to present their research at the National Conference for Undergraduate Research and other national or regional honors conferences.

  • Is in good standing (minimum 3.0 GPA, not on probation, etc.)
  • Will have completed his/her sophomore year (defined as having a minimum of 60 credit hours) or junior year prior to the beginning of the 2017 Summer Session
  • Will enroll for at least one semester at the University as an undergraduate student after the completion of the summer fellowship
  • Agrees to be involved in the program, from May 30 to August 4, and forgo any courses, employment, or internships that would interfere with participation in the 10-week program.

*Students graduating in May or August 2017 are not eligible.
