Undergraduate Summer Research Fellowships
The deadline for summer 2021 proposals has passed.
The ETSU Fellowships are administered by the Honors College with funds made available from the Honors College and the Provost's office to support challenging research projects involving ETSU undergraduate students who are nearing graduation.
Summer research fellowships are given to support undergraduate students in major research projects in collaboration with a member of ETSU faculty. The intent is to create an opportunity for significant progress on a project. Undergraduate students who plan to graduate in December 2021 or May 2022 are preferred for this program, although applications from rising juniors may be considered.
INTENT: Funds support undergraduate students in completing an immersive summer research project .
FOR WHOM: Although any undergraduate can compete for a Fellowship, the program seeks to support primarily undergraduates who will graduate in the academic year that follows the summer project.
HOW MUCH: For ETSU Fellowships, the maximum award per grant is $3,500 ($3,000 in scholarship + $500 for supplies or research travel).
CAVEAT: Students receiving the award MUST enroll for at least 1 credit hour during a summer session. A signature page is also required. Digital signatures are acceptable.
