Research Fellows Internship Fellows Teaching Fellows
Research Fellows engage full-time for eight weeks during the summer, collaborating with Furman faculty on research projects or creative activities that are intended to produce serious scholarship and result in conference presentations and/or publications or other appropriate display of their work. Applications are submitted by faculty and reviewed by the Furman Advantage Committee. Each of the Research Fellows selected receive a $3000 stipend. Preference is given to rising seniors with a grade point average of 3.0 in their major.  Faculty and students from all disciplines and majors are encouraged to participate. The Furman Advantage Program provides competitive fellowships to students who obtain full-time (minimum of eight weeks) summer internships that have an academic component directly related to their major or career goals. Through this program, students apply and compete for stipends to help offset expenses or supplement their salary. Applications are reviewed by the Furman Advantage Committee. The Furman Advantage Program supports students in all majors in summer internships throughout the nation and the world, with priority given to rising seniors and rising juniors. More information is available on the application. Teaching Fellows collaborate five hours a week during the academic year (or 20 hours a week during the summer) as junior colleagues to faculty members, assisting them with some aspect of teaching or course development. For example, they might help a faculty member develop a laboratory for a course, lead discussion sections, develop visual aids for a course, and/or help the professor give individual attention and tutoring in a course. Selected students are typically juniors and seniors who have at least a 3.0 grade point average in their major. The application deadline is generally mid-April for the following academic year.
