Undergraduate Fellowship Application FAQ

Our application process will begin in late November. Please check back for more details.


What does the fellowship cover?

Our fellowship will cover travel for US citizens and permanent residents (and up to $500 in travel costs for foreign students) and cover the majority of on-campus housing expenses for non-local students in addition to a stipend of $3,974 for a summer of continuous training in a faculty member's lab. 

I am not a junior. Can I still be accepted to the program?

We give first preference to applicants in their junior (3rd) year during the 2017-2018 academic year of undergraduate studies. Sophomores may apply for the program, but only exceptional applications will be considered. If not accepted they are encouraged to reapply in their junior year. Seniors who apply will only be considered if they have not already committed to a graduate program. We do not accept applications from first year students.

I'm a foreign student in a BS/MS program. Will you accept my application?

We give first preference to applicants in their 3rd year during the 2017-2018 academic year of undergraduate studies. 2nd year students may apply for the program, but only exceptional applications will be considered. If not accepted they are encouraged to reapply in their third year. Students beyond the third year will only be considered if they have not already committed to a doctoral program. We do not accept applications from first year students.

I have a bachelor's/master's/doctoral degree. May I apply for the fellowship?

This program is for current undergraduate students ONLY. Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows interested in the Center for Visual Science should contact the faculty member(s) who fits their areas of interest directly.
