Summer Research Fellowships
These grants support thesis-related or otherwise substantive research and/or creative projects over eight to ten weeks during the summer. Students proposing a research project should work closely with a faculty member and library staff to articulate a focused question, challenge, or area of study to be explored. If proposing travel, students must verify in consultation with library staff or a faculty member that the suggested location of research is necessary to the project. Students must also demonstrate prior interest and background in the proposed area of study.
Summer Research Fellowships must be at least eight weeks in length and no longer than ten weeks.
Students receive taxable stipends of $4000 to support their summer experiences. In addition, students who qualify for LIFTFAR Funding will receive 100% of the Student Savings Expectation (SEE) that is part of their financial aid package. Students who receive need-based financial aid, but do not qualify for LIFTFAR Funding, will receive 50% of the SEE that is part of their financial aid package.
