Fruehling Summer 2019 Undergraduate Research Fellowship

Posted on Monday, February 18th, 2019

Owing to the ongoing and generous support of donors Don and Gudrun Fruehling, we are pleased to announce the Summer 2019 Research Fellowship Program for CSBS undergraduate students. This is a wonderful opportunity to gain valuable experience through independent research.

Please review the online application for details related to eligibility and timing of the program. Students will need at least one faculty mentor from their academic department to help guide research through to completion. The application deadline is March 29, 2019.

We look forward to seeing the student projects that emerge from this year’s fellowship program.
