Robyn Rafferty Mathias Undergraduate Summer Fellowship

Mathias Summer Fellowships support student-initiated research and creative activities completed under the direction of faculty mentors. Fellowships for Summer 2021 provide $4500 student support funding, which includes any supplies needed to complete their research (e.g., materials, transportation, fieldwork). Faculty will provide mentorship over the summer to help a student develop, execute and analyze an original scholarly or artistic project. The faculty mentors receive a $500 stipend for their assistance on the student’s project.

Please note that faculty may only supervise one award-winning student per summer. Awardees must be majors in the College of Arts & Sciences and faculty mentors must be full-time CAS faculty during the period of the award. Students may only receive one summer award and are required to work full-time on their research project for a designated period in the summer. Any summer session courses taken by a student must fall outside the period identified for their research project. Please note that these funds may be taxable.
