Yale Gordon College of Arts and Sciences Undergraduate Scholarship Fellows

Melanie (Wagner) Sanderson, summer 2013

Through this fellowship program, students have the opportunity to participate in scholarship (research or a creative activity) in partnership with faculty mentors, allowing Fellows to gain valuable learning experiences through participation in the major phases of research and creative activity projects.

  • To qualify, you must have earned at least 60 credit hours and at least a 3.0 grade point average in your major prior to the summer semester.
  • If selected, you'll work a minimum of 25 hours per week for eight weeks during the summer, assisting faculty on research or creative projects.
  • Collaborative teams of students and faculty will present their projects at local, regional, national academic conferences or publish the results in a professional journal.
  • Students from all disciplines are invited to submit an application, which must be endorsed by your faculty mentor. A faculty committee reviews the proposals and recommends awards to the dean.
