Research and Creative Fellowships

Get funding to lead on your own research.

Not just in a lab! Lead an investigation in any major — or even add an academic lens to your artistic projects and community service.

It's your project, but you'll get 1-on-1 guidance from a faculty mentor, and join a community of peer scholars from other majors and backgrounds.
