Fellowship Information 
The Academic Year and Summer Fellowships were established to help provide financial
support for undergraduate students in hopes of creating an environment where students can
become involved in meaningful faculty-supervised research. Student’s proposals are reviewed
and scored by the CUGR Advisory Committee. The awarded projects are selected based on the
scores from the reviews and panel discussions. Each proposal must include an abstract, project
description, a timeline, a budget justification, and a faculty commitment letter.
