Due 8/12: First-Year Innovation & Research Fellowship
August 12 - August 13Free
Are you a first-year student interested in undergraduate research? FIRST could be the right choice for you! The First-Year Innovation and Research Scholar Training (FIRST) Fellowship offers an opportunity for select, highly motivated first-year students to participate in original research experiences coupled with a focus on innovation. FIRST fellowship recipients are awarded up to a $1000 stipend, disbursed as hourly pay, to compensate for their time spent on research. Applications are open until August 12th.
Upon announcement of FIRST recipients, awarded students will work with the office of Undergraduate Research Scholars and the Registrar’s Office to register for the required one credit seminar. Within the first few weeks of school, selected FIRST students will begin attending the seminar. Within the first month, FIRST awardees will begin identifying their mentors and projects of interest.
The available times for the seminar are Wednesday 2:00pm-2:50pm MST/MDT or Thursday 2:00pm-2:50pm MST/MDT. Even if you are unable to attend either of these times, we still recommend you apply. If you have questions, please contact us at the email below.
