This student-focused program aims to foster diversity by increasing the participation of underrepresented students in summer research and creative experiences in a wide range of disciplines. The program is extended, but not limited, to underrepresented minorities, women, first-generation college students, geographically underrepresented students, educationally or financially disadvantaged students, and students with disabilities.
The Fellowship program provides funds for a student to work collaboratively with a faculty member on a project in the arts, humanities, social sciences, STEM and health sciences (such as math, physics, geography, chemistry, computer/data science, engineering, environmental biology, nursing, optometry, pharmacy, public health). Student fellows work full time on a project with a faculty mentor over a 10-week period during the summer. The results of their work are shared with the University community at the Annual Symposium in the Fall Semester, and disseminated in publications and presentations at regional and national conferences.
