Research and Creative Fellowships

Spring applications will open this fall. 
You can conduct your own research, even as an undergraduate. And not just in the lab! Add an academic lens to your artistic projects or community service, too.  

  • Explore deeper questions independently, with guidance from a faculty mentor and fellowship advisor.
  • Get funding and support, so you can focus more on your work.
  • Expand your concepts about research beyond your own project, with interdisciplinary peer discussions, workshops and more.
